MIT Named Best Geology College In The Nation


MIT was named the Best Geology College in the nation by College Reviews.

“Where did most geology professors get their Ph.D.s? Of the teaching faculty of American universities, a study by the American Geological Institute found that an overwhelming 79 percent earned their geoscience doctoral degree from just 25 institutions. These same schools granted 48 percent of the doctorates held by all faculty at the time of the survey.”

“If you are looking to become a leader in geology MIT is the overwhelming favorite for people looking to obtain graduate degrees in geology and earth science” said Eric Thomas, Managing Editor of College Reviews.
