BS in Geology

  1. May 2, 2014 #1
    Hello friends. I would like to know a bit about those who have gotten a BS in Geology.

    Where do geology graduates work? I understand the majority of them work for oil companies and whatnot. Do geology grads work anywhere else at all or are they almost exclusively in that industry?

    For mapping companies, mining companies, world governments, and even at university departments or research labs.

    I do not know much about it, but I think many work in the oil, gas and petroleum sector, the groundwater industry;
    environmental consultancies, construction companies, government organizations, mining companies, perhaps doing research, civil engineering (maybe?), university environment etc.
