Our undergraduate program leads to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in geology and environmental geosciences, and gives students the choice of specializing in one of three emphases: Geology, Environmental Geoscience, and Earth Science Education.

The Department of Geology and Environmental Geosciences offers graduate programs that lead to either a Master’s (M.S.) or Doctoral (Ph.D.) degree. Students take courses to develop their scientific knowledge and skills, and then collaborate with a faculty adviser with whom they design, develop and execute an original research project. Opportunities for domestic and international travel abound and recent graduate students have worked in Mexico, Germany, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Norway, the Philippines, Alaska and Antarctica.
