Geology & Earth Systems Science - Bachelor of Science

Program Info
Earth System Science provides the knowledge and the skills to make observations and informed interpretations about the nature of the Earth and its relation to human activities. The geologic history and processes that drive the earth system (Plate Tectonics and Climate) provide insights that permit predictions relevant to natural resource management, geologic hazards, and basic land use. The Area of Concentration is intended for students who desire rigorous, broad-based preparation in most of the subdisciplines within geology. This program is strongly recommended for students who wish to attend graduate school in a geosciences area.
