Major: Geography and Geosciences (This Major's Salary over time)
For geosciences in general, MTU is an excellent university for the most part.

GOOD SIDE - The geology classes and geological engineering classes are superb - field trips and labs make classroom lecture very real. The instructors and very friendly but seem consumed by their work but always make time to help.

BAD SIDE - The geophysics program is broken and should be eliminated and should quit offering classes that don't exist. What is left of the geophysics program does not resemble what other universities are offering nor what industry is looking for. Lab experience is not defined at the university and the credit hours given for lab experience is actually much lower than similar labs in other universities of similar or higher caliber.

Summary - Simply because of how university manipulates credit hours for lab experience - I would choose another university if given the opportunity to do it all over.
