Putting Geology & Environmental Sciences to Work

Geology and environmental sciences students at Hartwick are encouraged to attend graduate school, and a number of recent graduates are pursuing advanced degrees at institutions including Harvard University, Cornell University, University of California at Berkeley, Binghamton University, South Dakota School of Mines, and Rutgers University.

Geology majors have gone on to careers in fields such as museum work; secondary and post-secondary teaching; hydrology; and the energy, mineral, environmental science, and oil/gas/mining industries. Our alumni are employed as interpretive rangers with the National Parks Service, senior project geologists, teachers, environmental analysts, and more.
