Milligan Room The DIRT Talk this week features the degree and P.Geo requirements for Earth Sciences undergraduate students.

Mike Young will give an overview of Earth Sciences at Dalhousie including degree and P.Geo course requirements. Most students have unique course combinations and may require one-on-one advising appointments with university or ERTH advisors. But, the bulk of the ERTH degree and P.Geo program is common for everyone and this presentation will be useful for most students. Mike will also summarize some job networking events this year, internal and external scholarships, career services resources, and advice for seeking honours and/or graduate programs.
