Geology

A Bachelor of Arts degree program is offered by the department. Students that choose this program typically double-major in the arts or humanities and geology.

The Bachelor of Science degree program in Geology (comprehensive) is designed for students that would like to directly enter the workforce or continue with graduate studies in the area of geology. Core requirements in this program cover the foundational concepts that students would need for a successful transition to graduate school and develop the skills that will be used in any geology-related field. Required collateral classes include two courses in chemistry, two courses in physics, and trigonometry or calculus.
