Geology Minor

A Geology Minor is offered for those students interested in applying their major in an earth and physical environmental context. The minor requires ten hours of upper-division courses in geology in addition to Geol 1040 and 1050. The geology advisor directs the student to those upper division courses most applicable to their major.

The Geology Minor augments those students majoring in physics, chemistry, biology and computer science who are focused on applying their disciplines to the environment. Direct applications include ground-water contamination and remediation (chemistry), environmental modeling (computer science), solid earth geophysics (earthquakes and earthquake engineering, physics) and the physical environmental context of plants and animals (biology).
