The department’s mission is to develop new knowledge regarding Earth's history, its environment and resources, engage our students in the process, and share that knowledge broadly. We have two areas of special focus: water and earth.  In both areas, we analyze how earth materials such as water, minerals, sediments and rocks, and energy move and change. The Department of Geosciences and UM are home to the Center for River Restoration and Stream Renaturalization, the Environmental Biogeochemistry Laboratory, and the Earth Materials Instrumentation Facility.

UM provides a culture that values hard work, intellectual curiosity, diversity, collegiality, innovative thinking and teamwork, making it a great place to grow and develop professionally.  Located at the heart of western Montana’s stunning natural landscape, UM attracts first-rate teachers, researchers, and students from around the world.
