Geology and Geography Non-Technical Skills

 

Non-technical skills (commonly referred to as "soft skills") are equally as important as the technical competencies students acquire within Master's degree programs. The survey asked faculty and students in Geology and Geography departments about students' preparation in 28 of these non-technical skills. Additionally, the survey asked non-academic professionals about how important each of these are to their current careers.  The graphs above highlight the trends from five of the 28 competencies.
