Geology is an earth science concerned with the solid Earth, the rocks of which it is composed, and the processes by which they change over time. Geology can also refer to studying the solid features of any terrestrial planet or natural satellite such as Mars or the Moon.

Modern geology significantly overlaps all other earth sciences, including hydrology and the atmospheric sciences, and so is treated as one major aspect of integrated earth system science and planetary science.

UTME and Direct Requirements and Course Descriptions.

Prepare yourself well so you can score above 200 in JAMB UTME to be on the safe side (Just advice)because anything short of this score may deny you Admission/Post UTME. Of course, if you have a score below 180, you can consider College of Education or Polytechnic…

Please note – JAMB is not the only option for admission. If you have trouble with JAMB UTME, maybe it’s time you pass through IJBM, JUBEB, ND, or Predegre

Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Geology;

(i) Two ‘A’ level passes from Geology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, Biology, and Geography.


While there are innumerable universities and polytechnics in Nigeria, only a handful have Geology as one of their faculties or department. We hope these would be of help to students who intend to study Geology as their major field of specialization at the undergraduate level of studies.
