UMF offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in Geology  that prepares students for either entry level jobs in the field of geology or graduate study.  Our students become familiar with both modern technology and relevant traditional field techniques.  There is a concerted effort on tha part of all faculty in the program to get students into the field, whether it be through their regular semester courses, or attending regional conferences and field activities, or through their highly regarded May term trips to such locations as Newfoundland, Scotland/Ireland, or the American Southwest.
