Can I get a job with a Geology degree?

You bet! Pitt-Johnstown Geology grads have been extremely successful in finding professional employment and developing rewarding careers in geology or environmental science.

In terms of professional employment, more than half of our grads pursue careers in environmental consulting or the geotechnical field. Many also work for government agencies or in the energy & mineral resource industries. Others have pursued teaching careers in Secondary Education or at the university level.

A significant portion (20-25%) of our students go on to earn graudate degress that enhance their career opportunities. Our alums have attended graduate programs across the United States, and even Canada and Australia.
