The Department of Geological Sciences is one of six departments within the Division of Science in the College of Arts and Science. It is housed in a large modern building, built in 1986, and which is situated on the northern side of the Bowl, at the heart of the University of Saskatchewan campus. The building is attractive and functional, and includes a Natural Sciences Museum with three full-scale dinosaur replicas, and spectacular rock and mineral displays that are open to the public throughout the year.
