Young, dynamic, vibrant and highly interdisciplinary, the Department of Geoscience at the University of Los Andes offers a modern approach to the study of Planet Earth; its planetary history, its structure, its composition, its mineral and energy resources, our impact on the environment, the natural risks that we must face. Our goal is that our students become responsible and innovative geoscientists, capable of making Earth a more habitable place for us and other species.
We offer an undergraduate program with excellence in the study of the Earth´s history, structure, composition, and the forces that govern the interaction between the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, the lithosphere and the biosphere.
The rapid increase in the world’s population and the fast pace of technological progress have turned humans into agents capable of having a deep impact on the environment. Our undergraduate students acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to maintain the delicate equilibrium between meeting our needs and the sustainability of the planet and its environment.
