According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, employment of geoscientists, including geologists, is expected to grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2018. Opportunities in the field are expected to be excellent for those with master's degrees, but competition for those with Ph.D.'s wishing to work in research or in university teaching positions will be stiff. Growth should also be strong in the areas of management, scientific, and technical consulting services, increasing the demand for geoscientists who work as consultants.
