Students who major in geology may earn a bachelor of science degree in programs in Geology (GLY) or Adolescence Earth Science Education (AES). Within the Geology bachelor's program, they may choose a Concentration in Environmental Science (GLY-ENVS) or Water Resources (GLY-WRES).
In the Adolescence Earth Science degree program (AES) students combine courses in the Geology major with a professional sequence leading to qualification for certification as teachers of High School Earth Science, Environmental Science, or Middle School General Science.
Academic credit may be earned for field trips and internships which are open to qualified students in all programs.
The Geology Department also participates in the Earth and Sky Program for freshman involving immersion in courses in Astronomy and Geology, as a focus for entrance into one of these science majors.
