The Department of Geology at Lakehead University offers both Undergraduate and Masters degrees in geology and geophysics. Courses offered by the department place a strong emphasis on ‘hands-on’ geology reflecting our location within the Canadian Shield. Faculty members have strong research programs in Northern Ontario and overseas with projects being undertaken in Mexico, Chile, the Philippines and Cyprus. Many of our students have found employment in the petroleum and minerals industries, with geotechnical environmental companies, with government surveys and as educators, while others have pursued graduate work.
