The Department of Earth Sciences offers a BS degree in geosciences with four possible concentrations (geology, environmental geology, geographic information systems (GIS), and geography). The department consists of seven full-time faculty and three adjunct faculty with specializations in mineralogy/petrology, structural geology and tectonics, field geology, paleontology, sedimentation/stratigraphy, GIS/remote sensing, geomorphology, meteorology, and hydrogeology. The faculty is student-oriented and works closely with geology majors.
The curriculum emphasizes both theoretical and applied geology. Graduates of our program are well-prepared to enter graduate school or to seek career employment in the geosciences. The department offers modern laboratory equipment and instructional aids to assist in the study of the geosciences.
