Geology

Geology (from the Ancient Greek γῆ, gē ("earth") and -λoγία, -logia, ("study of", "discourse")) is an earth science concerned with the solid Earth, the rocks of which it is composed, and the processes by which they change over time.

If you’re an educational professional who are looking to progress into mechanics, heat, light and other radiation, sound, electricity, magnetism, and the structure of atoms, this is the best degree for you.
