Minor in Geology
Students interested in creating a self-designed major in Geology should contact the Program Director.
The geology minor provides students an opportunity for interdisciplinary studies within the field of geology and is open to all majors, but is particularly well-suited for environmental studies, biology, and environmental and secondary education majors. The minor will prepare students considering graduate school for geology, especially those disciplines related to geomorphology and surficial processes. The minor will also provide students with the necessary field skills needed for employment with environmental consulting and geotechnical firms.
It is recommended, but not required, that students pursuing a geology minor take a Field Geology course.
