What does my path have to look like in order to become an environmental geologist?

You can only search so much online, so I feel like I have the basis of what it might have to look like, but I've never had any one give their personal account. To know what someone went through, and to know their advice would be more than helpful for me. #environmental-geology #geology

I will be taking a Fieldcraft / Outdoor Proficiency class as part of my major (Geology). Should I still participate in a Geology Field Camp?

I plan to have a career in geoscience. I want to be prepared for my future career. I also wonder if a Field Camp experience is especially important to employers. #geology #geoscientist #environmental-geology #geoscience #geologist

What are good careers surrounding the geology field

Geology has always caught my interest because rocks and the earth have fascinated me. Just all the different sizes and colors they give and the sound you can hear from them, the ways they resonate with different materials when they come in contact or tap each other. #geology #environmental-science #rocks #landscaping

How do I find a job that incorporates everything I love to do? What degree should I pursue?

I am absolutely in LOVE with the outdoors and travel. My favorite subjects in school have always been Geology, Earth Science, and Biology. I am very passionate about the environment and sustainability. I look forward to all my classes, and I really enjoy being a student in general. College is my happy place, I think because of how much a I enjoy learning. I consider myself a relatively creative person too- I spend a lot of time on art projects and writing. Any suggestions for me? I would like to combine my love for nature/science and my creative thinking :) #science #nature #geology #creative-professions #travel

Do you see a lot of cross-over in the areas of expertise of people with different Earth Science degrees?

There are many different degrees relating to Earth Science, like Geophysics, Applied or Near-Surface Geophysics, Geochemistry, Geology, pure Earth Science, etc, and different colleges offer different ones. I know that there are technically differences between them, but I also know that college degrees can often prepare students for a variety of careers. Do you often see people with different degrees working on the same projects in similar professions? Have you ever been limited in any way by the degree path you chose? Do certain degrees within Earth Science better prepare students for certain activities and responsibilities than others do? #environmental-science #earth-science #nature #geology #geophysics #oil #hydrologist #geochemistry

Do political and industrial motives significantly influence the types of research conducted by Geophysicists and the impacts of the results they find?

I have always been interested in the environment and especially in geology. The amount of information that an experienced geologist can deduce from aspects of the local strata and environment is amazing to me, and I want to use that information to help people live safely and harmoniously with our natural environment. Unfortunately, it has been difficult for me to find a career that allows me to fulfill that dream. I have talked to a few people who quit working at environmental consulting firms because political interests were so much more potent in influencing company decisions than pure scientific research was. My moral code would not allow me to work in situations like that. I hope that Geophysics will have less political influence because of the emphasis on more theoretical mathematics and physics-based research applied to broader subjects like plate tectonics and seismology, but I know that the research still has practical applications and could be affected by political or industrial motives. #physics #environmental-science #earth-science #geology #geophysics

What are the classes you took when you engaged in the geophysics course? How hard was it to find a job after graduation?

I want to be a seismologist and I've read that you have to take physics and geology courses. However, there are no specific classes that I should take. #physics #geology #geophysics #seismologist
