How much education does it take to become a geologist?

Im about to start a degree in geology in a college in Australia . Its a 3 year bachelor degree in science. And Im also going to do my masters in Geology and hopefully to my phd in the far future.

And I'm also planning on going back to America to do my masters (i was there before and i went to high school there in chicago) And what kind of jobs are available for me with a masters degree and what is the average salary or starting salary?
