What We Offer

Summary

When Sir Charles Lyell visited the falls and gorge of Niagara in 1841, he marvelled that they were essential for understanding earth history, and calculated the first numerical constraint on the Earth’s age using the recession rate of the falls. Today, the UB Department of Geology carries on Lyell’s tradition at the source of American geology with cutting-edge research on volcanoes and geologic hazards, climate change and polar research, environmental science, and evolutionary ecology.

Students entering the department are expected to have a solid background in geology and to have successfully completed courses in mathematics, physics, and chemistry. However, students with training in other natural science disciplines and engineering are encouraged to apply; any deficiencies in their knowledge of geology can be overcome with additional study.

MS and PhD applicants with prior research experience in the geosciences are strong candidates for admission.
