Geology is the scientific study of the Earth, including its composition, dynamics, surface processes and history. The Geology major provides broad training and a diverse range of courses appropriate for students interested in pursuing a professional career or graduate studies in the earth sciences and related fields.

The Environmental Geology track is designed for students with a particular interest in Earth’s surficial processes, especially as they relate to human interaction with the landscape and environment. Environmental geology examines those topics, such as hydrogeology and geomorphology that are influenced by interaction between the lithosphere and climate system.
