Reviews of BS in Geology graduates:

C. M.
Studied BS Geology
at University of the Philippines Diliman , Quezon City
Graduated: 2013

Why did I choose this course:
Actually, I'm a shiftee. I shifted to geology because I thought it' fun. I'm an outdoorsy person so it really suits my personality.

About my college education:
You'll realize that there are so many things that already happened and that compared to these formations-land, sea, air-our span of life is nothing. Most difficult subject would be the geologic history subject. Most useful would be structural, petrology and geothermal energy subjects. Passing exams was difficult. There were numerous times that the teacher must adjust the passing rate for the students to pass.

What you need is wide understanding and lots of imagination because moat of the subjects you are dealing with didn't happen on the surface of the earth and not within the human lifetime.

My current job:
Geologist in a geothermal company

Am I using what I learned in college:
Time management and being practical and learn to socialize with different types of people.

How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
Right after grad, I already got hired, but only contractual for 4 months. Than after 3 months, I got a regular job.

Advice to people who are thinking of studying this course:
Pursue it. You wont regret it.
