Mission Statement

Department of Geosciences, Murray State University

An area in geosciences with options in earth science, earth science teacher certification, geoarchaeology, geographic information science, and environmental geology are provided by the department faculty. In addition to the more traditional curricula, geosciences students have access to the Murray State Archaeology Lab, a summer field archaeology school, and the Mid-America Remote Sensing Center, a core entity in the Murray State University Center of Excellence for Reservoir Research. Geosciences majors are encouraged to participate in internships and cooperative education experiences. Graduates have outstanding opportunities for employment as archaeologists, planners, cartographers, professional geologists, remote sensing/GIS professionals, and other mapping science positions in business, industry, government, and education.
