The Department of Geophysics at CSM is the largest department in the U.S. specializing in applied geophysical research and education. Even so, students receive individualized attention in a close-knit environment. Graduates from the program find employment in the resource industry with major oil companies, contractors involved in seismic and borehole logging surveys, and mineral exploration. They also find employment in the emerging engineering and geotechnical industries with positions offered by government agencies and the myriad of small contracting firms specializing in shallow subsurface characterization for environmental, water management, and civil engineering applications.
