Geoscience Major

The study of Earth Sciences integrates many of the classical sciences like chemistry and physics and applies their principles to a diverse range of processes. The major program aims to give students exposure to the traditional geoscience curriculum (e.g., Mineralogy, Petrology, Geological structures and Maps, Field Techniques). Students wishing for a more customized degree should explore the Earth and Environmental Systems Major. Students are advised to be aware of course prerequisites and check clusters of courses listed for the geoscience major program. For further questions, please consult with the Undergraduate Administrator, Scott Moore.
