Students will learn about both the internal and surface processes acting on the earth, including the forces behind plate tectonics and its surface manifestations, earthquakes and volcanoes. The Geological Sciences student will take advantage of new and developing technologies such as the use of global positioning systems and geographic information systems (GIS) in the mapping of geologic, soil, water and other environmental features.
The major leads to a BS degree that prepares students for graduate study in any of the geological sciences, for students who wish to qualify for a teaching certificate in Earth Science, or for students interested in the study of geology or astronomy as part of an undergraduate liberal arts education.
