For thirty years, the Department of Geosciences has provided comprehensive education through traditional classroom-based learning, as well as laboratory-, research-, and field-based studies. Graduates have successfully pursued careers and graduate studies in quickly growing job fields such as natural hazard mitigation, geochemistry, geophysics, remote sensing, GIS technology, and environmental remediation.
This year, the theme is, “Educating Scientists for Careers related to the Earth and Environment” stressing the application of all of the physical sciences to the study of the Earth.
The public is welcome to enjoy an informal and friendly evening of light refreshments and conversation. You may RSVP to the department office at (219) 980-6740 or by emailing Kris Huysken at firstname.lastname@example.org or the department secretary, Mary Hackett at email@example.com .
