Undergraduate Society

The Carleton University Geology Society (GeoSoc) is a great student-run organization that is friendly and fun. We run professional development workshops and host guest speakers to highlight the interesting side of earth sciences. We bounce ideas off each other and run some awesome events to bring together those with an interest in earth sciences.

Society of Economic Geologists

Society of Economic Geologists Student Chapter (OCUSEG)

Membership is open to undergraduate and graduate students alike. We organize events throughout the year that aim to advance the science of geology through the scientific investigation of mineral deposits and mineral resources. Past events include conferences, symposia, field trips, short courses, workshops, and lecture series.

This is a great opportunity for any student interested in economic geology. There are various volunteer positions available that not only provide a great learning experience, but that can also give you the opportunity to make industry contacts that are important for your future career.
