Starting fall 2017, the Department of Geology will welcome its first majors in Geology. The Bachelor of Science (BS) in Geology and the Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Geology are physical science majors composed of foundation courses in science and mathematics; core courses in geology; and electives in geoscience, applied geology, or paleontology. Both programs are designed to prepare students to enter the geoscience workforce in consulting firms or government agencies; pursue professional studies; or undertake advanced graduate studies in geoscience disciplines. The BS in Geology is specifically designed to provide students with the background necessary to pass the Professional Geologist (PG) exam. Students who pursue a BA in Geology have greater flexibility to take electives in environmental studies, geography, social sciences, and other disciplines.
