    I have not heard of a course of study called "Petroleum Geology". If a person wants to become a petroleum geologist they major in Geology or in Geophysics. When they go for their Masters Degree in Geology or Geophysics, they take all the Graduate classes available that deal with petroleum. Career options are simple: you will become a petroleum geologist and search for the dwindling locations where petroleum is found.
