AGI CURRENTS - How do geologists make a living in 2019?

Our latest factsheet is the first in a series on professional licensure of geologists. Less than 11% of geoscience graduates receiving a BA/BS or MA/MS degree develop a career in academia and/or research. Research by the American Institute of Professional Geologists, National Association of State Boards of Geology and AGI indicate that geologists are predominantly securing employment in three broad sectors: environmental remediation and management, natural resource discovery and utilization, and engineering and construction. In this factsheet, we examine the types of work geoscience professionals perform in these industry sectors.
