Department of Geology

Geology is the study of the processes, products and history of the Earth. There is a continuous demand for energy and mineral resources globally, so is the demand for geologists. The Department of Geology at the University of Jordan has been a home for pioneering research and excellent teaching for well over forty years, with our graduates becoming leaders in both academia and industry. We have strong research programs in earth materials, mineralogy, sedimentary and earth surface processes, hydrogeology, remote sensing, geophysics, geochemistry/petrology, and structural geology with the emphasis on the geology of Jordan and its mineral and water resources. The Department of Geology strives to not only conduct advanced research but to also provide high-quality education in the geosciences at the undergraduate and graduate level.
