Geology

The major in Geology provides students with an understanding of the materials that make up the Earth; the history of the Earth; and physical, chemical, and biological processes that have operated on and within the Earth throughout its history. The major consists primarily of Earth and Environmental Science courses, and it is supplemented by courses in mathematics, chemistry and/or physics. All majors are expected to participate in certain departmental activities including departmental field trips held annually or semi-annually and special lecture programs with visiting speakers.
