Earth Science is the study of the Earth, including its water and atmosphere, and their relationship to humans and other living things. Earth Science applies chemistry, physics, mathematics and biology to scientific problems of the Earth.  


The Bachelor in Earth Science Education program offered by Utah Valley University provides a wide range of skills and knowledge that are applicable to today's earth science job markets, as well as a broad science education that's ideal for students planning to continue to graduate programs in law, education, business, or health fields. 

Our Department graduates professionals who are skilled and creative and who are well prepared to contribute toward solving earth and environmental science challenges faced here in Utah and worldwide.

The Earth Science Education degree prepares K-12 science teachers. The degree emphasizes earth science curriculum, but many students gear their program to qualify them to teach other physical sciences and/or geography. Job prospects for graduates are outstanding, and many UVU-educated earth science teachers are making a difference in young people’s lives through their work in Utah’s K-12 school system.
