Welcome to the Geology Department at Radford University!
We are a small but full-service program that provides students with a basic framework for a professional career in the field of geology, for graduate studies in geology, or for licensure to teach earth and space science. Although our students enter a wide variety of professions within the field of geology, from volcanology, glaciology to tectonics, we take pride in our Environmental and Engineering Concentration that provides our students with hands-on experience in the technology and equipment that is used in the geotechnical and environmental field. We are located in the beautiful Valley and Ridge of southwest Virginia, and classic rock exposures and research opportunities of wide variety are close to campus.
