Bachelor's Degree Program


Programs in geology at the University of Regina study earth science from the perspectives of traditional geology, environmental geoscience, paleontology, geography, and sustainable energy systems.

Studying Geology at the University of Regina

The Department of Geology offers undergraduate programs of B.Sc. in Geology and B.Sc. in Environmental Geoscience, both of which are eligible for APEGS (Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan) membership that is transferable to every other jurisdiction in Canada. We also have graduate programs including M.Sc. and Ph.D., with research areas covering both "hard rock" and "soft rock" studies, mineral and oil-gas resources, and environmental studies. We have an established reputation for training highly "rock-conscious" students, and we are extremely proud of our students’ employment record.


Our programs offer experiential learning in the classroom, lab, and field settings. Undergraduates have the opportunity to do their own, independent research projects, learning alongside graduate students and experienced faculty, while our graduate students can build their skills working closely with supervisors who will guide and support their growth as researchers.

Sample courses

  • Internal processes of the Earth
