The MSU Mankato Geology program is designed to meet the learning and career needs of our students. Geologists are at the forefront of pressing environmental and resource issues.  At MSU, you can explore:

  • Engineering Geology (making the earth ready for highways, buildings, bridges, dams, etc.)
  • Environmental Geology (understanding geologic hazards such as earthquakes, landslides, and the like, and protecting people them)
  • Natural Resources Management (conserving and protecting land and water resources)
  • Resources Development (extracting building materials, water, metals, and oil/gas from the earth)
  • Teaching (sharing concepts and experiences with the next generation of Earth citizens)

If you seek more information about the geology program at MSU Mankato or want to "talk rocks", contact one of us on the "Faculty" page.
