Students wishing to pursue an intensive study of geology with the goal of graduate research or entering the mining, oil, and energy sectors are encouraged to enroll in the specialist program*. There are a number of choices through collaborative programs with other departments including:
If you want to concentrate on geology but either less instensively than those in the specialist program or in conjuction with any other topic you should enroll in either of the environmental geosciences or the geology major programs
If you want to study geology as part of your general education, or to supplement studies in a different area, you should enroll in the minor program.
*Most of our undergraduate students in a specialist program plan to work as a professional geoscientists. This requires professional registration, and in our program this is regulated by the Association of Professional Geoscientists in Ontario, see http://www.apgo.net/student-req.htm or page 6 of the Undergraduate Handbook for information on APGO requirements.
