Geologists study the structure, composition, and history of the Earth. Their concerns include locating water, fuel, and mineral resources; determining appropriate land usage; and diagnosing natural hazards such as floods, volcanoes, and earthquakes. Students preparing for a professional career in Geology should plan to transfer to a four-year college, and then to attend graduate school for a Master’s Degree.
