Major in Mineralogy & Geochemistry
The structures and properties of earth materials.
Students in Mineralogy & Geochemistry learn to interprete the textures of rocks and minerals, to analyse them with chemical and physical methods, to perform experiments to understand mineral- and rock-forming processes and to use computer tools to simulate geological processes that are either too long, too hot or too deep to be investigated directly.
