What does a geologist do?

A geologist is a scientist who studies the solid, liquid, and gaseous matter that constitutes the Earth and other terrestrial planets, as well as the processes that shape them. Geologists usually study geology, although backgrounds in physics, chemistry, biology, and other sciences are also useful.

How much money do you get for being a geologist?

The American Association of Petroleum Geologists reports every year on average salaries spanning years experience and degree acquired. You will notice that entry-level geologists earn on average $92,000, $104,400, and $117,300 for a bachelor, masters, and PhD degree in geology, respectively.

Do you need math for geology?

Structural geology also requires math, ranging from rather easy for three dimensional stress-strain and deformation modeling to rather more difficult stereonet analysis. You mentioned petroleum geology. The math requirements for that are even more extensive.

What kind of math is used in geology?

Most geology degrees do require at least a 1st year university math course, like calculus. Having said that, in my career as a research geologist I did use some of my algebra and stats courses in particular, but never calculus. Also, the ability to understand and use software programming are important skills.
