Mineralogy is focused on the study of minerals – their composition, structure, properties, and the processes that lead to their formation. Students in this field investigate a wide array of minerals, from common rock-forming minerals to precious gemstones. They delve into crystallography, geochemistry, and petrology, learning to identify minerals and understand their role in the Earth's crust. Through hands-on laboratory work and field studies, they learn the practical applications of minerals in various industries. Graduates of Mineralogy often pursue careers in mining and resource management, gemology, or academic research, contributing critical expertise to the exploration and sustainable use of Earth's mineral resources.
