The Geology Department at the University of Illinois has been a home for pioneering research and excellent teaching for well over a century, with our graduates becoming leaders in both academia and industry. As one of the nation’s top public research universities, we have extensive resources, enabling our students to learn the skills needed to solve today’s problems. We are using those resources to expand that reach with the Online Master’s and Certificate programs in Environmental Geology.
Most students in this program are non-traditional students already working in a professional role within the geology field. These students are looking to advance to a higher level within an organization as well as add to their skillset in the highly technical field that is ever-changing. Collaboration and interaction with other professionals are often noted by online students as a highly desired aspect of pursuing an advanced degree.
