This program focuses on the scientific study of Earth; forces acting upon and within it; and the makeup and behavior of the solids, liquids, and gases comprising the planet. The B.A. in Geosciences is designed for students who desire a broad liberal arts education that prepares them for careers such as environmental consulting, energy and resource management, and Geoscience education.
The B.A. in Geosciences is a flexible option that allows students to concentrate their coursework in selected areas of geology, earth surface processes, weather and climate, geospatial science, or oceanography. Because of the flexible degree requirements, many students are able to pursue a second major or minor in addition to the B.A. Geosciences.
