The Department of Geological Sciences at SUNY Geneseo offers three B.A. degree programs, Geology, Geophysics and Geochemistry. In 2012-13, these programs include 83 Geology majors, 17 Geophysics majors and 4 Geochemistry majors. Approximately 25% of Geology majors are also Secondary Education majors planning to teach Earth science at the middle school or high school level. National reports and institutional policies, the available expertise of six full-time faculty, and discussions with employers and alumni. The Geology, Geochemistry, and Geophysics programs are assessed approximately every two years by internal evaluations and every five years by external reviews of the programs. Writing and research requirements are assessed by all the faculty in our Capstone Seminar. Exams in required courses are designed in ways to accommodate the assessment of learning outcomes. Most of our graduates begin a M.S. or Ph.D. program within 2 years of graduation. Of these, a slight majority work in industry (energy companies or environmental consulting) and the rest become teachers.
