Physics and Geosciences



Welcome to the Geosciences Programs at Texas A&M University-Kingsville! We take pride in providing students with ample field and professional experiences, as well as a stellar education which provides them with ample background for their professional development. Through experienced faculty members and frequent professional workshops, as well as our field camps, we provide students with a well-rounded education in Geosciences, Geophysics, and Geology. Join us in exploring the wonders of the earth!

BS in Geology

Geoscientists are stewards or caretakers of Earth's resources and environment. They work to understand natural processes on Earth and other planets. Investigating the Earth, its soils, oceans, and atmosphere; forecasting the weather; developing land-use plans; exploring other planets and the solar system; determining environmental impacts, and finding new sources of useful Earth materials are just a few of the ways geoscientists contribute to our understanding of Earth processes and history.
