Department of Geosciences
The Department of Geosciences is home to NDSU's Geology and Geography programs. We are also home to about 50 undergraduate majors, who participate in a close-knit environment with opportunities for research, field trips and other educational experiences. We invite your inquiries into our program and to arrange for an appointment and tour.
The Death Valley Geology Field Course was again offered in March, 2015. This and NDSU's
other field geology courses provide opportunities for our majors (1st through 4th year) to
field train -- while camping and enjoying magnificent geologic settings.
