Professional Licensure Disclosures
Professional licensure requirements vary from state to state. Students who intend to pursue professional licensure outside of the State of Minnesota should contact the appropriate agency to seek guidance and information confirming licensing requirements. Students should be aware that licensure requirements are subject to change periodically and may include educational or degree requirements, professional examinations, background checks, character and fitness qualifications, work experience, fingerprinting, and other requirements.
The geology major satisfies requirements for the Professional Geologist certification in some states. Students can study for and take the Fundamentals of Geology exam after graduation as the next step toward this board certification.
