^ Thank you o!

The interesting thing is that none of those articles said anything explicit about oil or oil companies.

I'm sure the op will be leaning towards chem or pet engrg now because down here, when we hear geology, we think Shell & co.

The after-school challenges expressed by majority of geologists on this forum doesnt make it any more enticing.

Of the 3, I guess Physics is the clear winner, but why not go for an engineering course?

for the differences, check Google then ask us questions on specific things you dont understand.

As per where they work or can work, check their respective threads up there.

You can actualy get this information through google. However find the answers below;

Geology: The study of the earth interior, its structure and the materials that makes it up.

Geophysics: Study of the earth interior using geophysical methods- electrical, gravity, magnetic, seismic

Physics: Scientific study of matter and energy and how they interact with each other.

Geologist, Geophysicist and Physicist can all work in the oil and gas coy.

Geologist / Geophysicist can work in the civil construction coy as a geotechnical professional, can work in drilling coy (both water and oil/gas), mineral exploration coy, Research Institute, etc
