An understanding of environmental change necessarily involves the scientific study of the origin, history, and structure of the Earth. GMC’s geology program is an excellent complement to other science or environmental majors.
The geology minor provides you with an opportunity for interdisciplinary studies within the field of geology and is open to all majors. It is particularly well-suited for environmental studies, biology, and environmental and secondary education majors. The minor will prepare you to consider graduate school for geology, especially those disciplines related to geomorphology and surficial processes. The geology minor will also provide you with the necessary field skills needed for employment with environmental consulting and geotechnical firms.
