    Geophysicists are scientists who study the Earth’s physical properties, which is essential for a number of industries. They need at least a bachelor’s degree, but graduate level studies are required for many jobs.

    Essential Information
    Geophysicists are specialized scientists who study the Earth’s physical properties. They typically do field and lab work for private companies in the engineering and oil industries, governmental geological surveys or environmental protection groups. A master’s degree in geophysics, geoscience or a similar field is the recommended education for geophysicists, though some entry-level positions may be attainable with a bachelor’s degree. Research and teaching positions require a Ph.D. Computer skills are increasingly important for geophysicists.

    Required Education: Bachelor’s degree at minimum; master’s degree or Ph.D. needed for some positions

    Other Requirements: Computer skills, particularly in mapping, modeling and GIS/GPS; fieldwork experience

    Job Growth (2018-2028): 6% for geoscientists (except hydrologists and geographers)

    Median Salary (2018): $91,130 for geoscientists (except hydrologists and geographers)
