Student Researchers

Research is a fundamental part of the Albion geology experience.  Students have a variety of  opportunities to conduct independent research. The student research experience typically includes several steps:  writing a short proposal, conducting field work and sampling, completing laboratory analyses, writing up methods and results, and giving an oral presentation.

Research as part of classes: All students enrolled in our Introductory Geology course complete small-scale group research projects and many advanced geology classes provide field and/or lab research opportunities as part of the lab experience.

Independent and Collaborative Research: Upper-level geology students are encouraged to complete independent research projects in collaboration with faculty members, either as semester-long directed studies or as summer projects. Students are encouraged to complete senior theses, which are great springboards for graduate school and careers as professional geologists.
