St. Thomas and the Geology Department offers a wide variety of study abroad opportunities. The Geology Department specifically offers a field course that runs every J-Term to the Southwestern United States, GEOL 260. This field course is a requirement for our majors. We also have had several students complete some of their geology major requirements as part of off-campus study abroad programs. These types of experiences provide a wonderful broadening of the traditional geology degree and give our students excellent exposure to new faculty, new geological settings, and new cultures!
"Twenty years from now
you will be more disappointed
by the things that you didn't do
than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover."
