Interested in What the Earth is Made of and How History has Shaped it?
Get ready to rock – and more importantly, study – the Earth! With the opportunity to work outdoors or in a laboratory setting, a career in geology can be an exciting adventure that could lead you to new discoveries. Geologists study solid and liquid matter that make up the earth, as well as the processes and history that have shaped it. Much like a detective, you will utilize data and observations to determine what happened and why it transpired. If you're excited about exploring the world in search of resources, researching new and innovative scientific technology, or consulting with industry, business and governmental leaders on environmental and engineering problems, then Gulf Coast State College's Geology Option, Liberal Arts AA Degree could be the perfect fit for you!
