Norwich University's tradition of excellence and proud military heritage that began at its campus in 1819 is reflected in its online graduate programs that are offered to adult learners across the country and the world. All of the Norwich online programs offer relevant, focused curricula, and small, interactive classes. As an institution long associated with innovation in education and the preparation of the nation's business, government, and military leaders, Norwich faculty and its graduates continue to contribute to the development of the economic, political, and social infrastructure of the nation and the world.
Norwich University, located in the middle of the Green Mountain State, is ideally situated for unhurried and unhampered studies of the Earth. The geology program provides a broad background in the physical sciences with emphasis on geology and its pivotal role in understanding our environment.
Our strong emphasis on field studies and outdoor experience results in students having experiential learning both in their courses and on department field trips, such as recent trips in southern Utah, west Texas, southern California, central Arizona and throughout New England and eastern Canada.
Geology courses are presented by faculty who are both respected teachers and active researchers in New England, Europe and the western U.S. Courses include real projects and original research participation.
Our graduates are successful and prepared to go on to graduate school or begin work in industry, consulting, or state and federal surveys.
