What kind of degree do you need to study earthquakes?

    Geology; at a minimum some significant geology courses. It might be possible to get a job studying earthquakes with a math or physics degree, but you can’t really understand earthquakes without understanding geology.

    Now that many institutions are giving students the option to design their own majors, I would think that you would have the ability to go into a program where you would be able to study geology with a concentration in earthquakes in your desired. The possibilities are endless really now that colleges are giving these sorts of loose guidelines for majors. It’s really great.
