Welcome to the homepage of the Department of Geology and Geophysics in the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. The department is located on the University of Hawai‘i’s largest campus (about 20,000 students), overlooking Waikiki and downtown Honolulu.
Inclusive of Cooperating and Affiliate members, more than 60 Graduate Faculty teach and advise graduate students in the Geology and Geophysics fields of study. The collective research expertise and programs of these faculty provide a broad diversity of potential projects and employment opportunities for students. Department faculty are loosely organized into three Divisions: Geophysics and Tectonics, Marine and Environmental Geology, and Volcanology, Geochemistry and Petrology; the research activities and publications of the Geology and Geophysics Faculty are described on other pages of this web site.
A career in the geosciences is a great way to work on interesting and socially relevant issues while interacting with the environment. Jobs are waiting for our graduates!
