The Department of Geosciences at the East Tennessee State University offers a Bachelor of Science in Geology and Geography.
As a geology graduate from ETSU, you will learn to perform a wide range of important services for our civilization: you will learn to determine the stability of building sites, find abundant supplies of clean water, search for valuable deposits of natural resources such as iron, coal, and oil, and also will try to minimize the threat to communities at risk from geologic hazards.
With a degree in geography, graduates will gain an understanding of how humankind has developed through the years, and how we fit in to the larger world around us. Societies and cultures evolve in part as a result of their physical environment. The key to understanding our history and our future is in understanding how we interact with this physical environment.
