Welcome to the Department of Geology

Welcome to the Department of Geology, part of the Faculty of Science at the University of Regina.

We offer several undergraduate degree pathways, which can easily be tailored to meet individual requirements. Graduates with a B.Sc. in geology or a  B.Sc. in environmental geoscience from the University of Regina are eligible to apply for membership in the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan. We also offer exciting Master's and Ph.D. programs, and we are extremely proud of our students' employment record.

Our faculty members, graduate students and collaborators are active in various fields of geoscience research including petroleum and mineral resources and environmental studies. Graduate students have the opportunities to conduct field-based projects in various parts of Saskatchewan, Canada and elsewhere in the world as well as laboratory-based research.

This website provides information on the degrees that we offer, our faculty and staff, research fields and facilities, student support and opportunities, as well as news and events in the Department of Geology. We hope this website has been helpful to you and we welcome your feedback.


August 21, 2018: Dr. Guoxiang Chi's paper entitled "Petrography, fluid inclusion analysis, and geochronology of the End uranium deposit, Kiggavik, Nunavut, Canada" was selected as one of the most influential articles of 2017 published in Mineralium Deposita. In an interview with Springer, the Editors-in-Chief, Dr. Georges Beaudoin and Dr. Bernd Lehmann, highlighted the contributions of the journal to shaping of metallogenic models for more than 50 years and its leading role in the field (with an Impact Factor of 3.370), and selected four most influential articles published in the journal in 2017, among which is Dr. Chi's paper. This paper provided the first detailed analysis of fluid boiling and its role in uranium mineralization related to sedimentary basins, and has drawn significant attention in the field. According to Google Schoolar, the paper has been cited 18 times since its publication in 2017.
