Geoscience graduates arguably have the most diverse career prospects of any student with a scientific background. As a result of the skills gained from studying the history, nature, materials, and processes of the Earth, geoscientists are uniquely positioned to solve a wide variety of problems. Geoscientists work in the public, private, and academic sectors, as well as, in the field, laboratory, and office. Careers range from mineral resource development to the mitigation of environmental damage, consultation on infrastructure construction to waste management, and the study of Earth’s past to space exploration. Below is a list of possible careers alongside relevant courses offered in the Department of Geoscience at the University of Calgary.
