Hope College's Department of Geological and Environmental Sciences has an established reputation of excellence. Many graduating seniors have gone directly to work in environmental consulting firms and oil companies while others have been accepted at some of the most prestigious graduate programs in the country, including the California Institute of Technology, University of Chicago, Harvard, Stanford, and Princeton.

Hope College is ideally situated to study glacial geology, sedimentology, geomorphology, limnology, and environmental problems.  Thus, a variety of field studies are directly available. To broaden the spectrum of field experience and research opportunities, students commonly take longer trips to examine the geology of other areas in the United States and abroad.
