Welcome to the website of the Department of Geology at Baylor University located in Waco, Texas! We are a vibrant and growing Department of 18 faculty, approximately 40 graduate students (M.S. and Ph.D.), and approximately 90 undergraduates emphasizing interdisciplinary undergraduate and graduate instruction and research in the geosciences. We are located on the 4th floor of the Baylor Sciences Building (BSB) in the C, D. and E wings, and our Department office is in BSB Room D409 (254-710-2361). The Geology Department at Baylor University provides high-quality undergraduate and graduate education, and develops geoscience students into competent practitioners, whether they eventually choose to work in industry, academia, or government sectors of employment. Our faculty members emphasize teaching state-of-the-art courses and research involving one-on-one mentoring of our students, which is possible given our smaller class sizes and favorable faculty/student ratios. And we are fortunate to have a very loyal and generous alumni group that contributes to the overall financial health of our program as well as provides opportunities for networking and job-seeking.
