Geology Programs

The Geology program consists of a traditional core curriculum with electives that are primarily in the realm of Environmental Science. Candidates for the B.A. and B.S. degrees in Geology must complete 120 credits of course work including satisfaction of the College Group Requirements and the University General Education Requirements, in addition to the Geology major requirements. Most upper level courses involve both a laboratory and a field component. Students are required to satisfactorily complete a Writing Intensive Course, and to complete 6 credits of Geology Field Camp for the B.S. degree or 2 credits of Geology Field Camp for the B.A. degree.

Students are encouraged to use Degree Works to track their current degree progress. Degree Works can be accessed via Academica ( beneath the Student Resources tab. Additional information about Degree Works can be found here:

Degree Works is NOT a substitution for seeing your Academic Advisor.

Students are expected to see their Advisor at least once per semester to track their degree progress and to address any concerns they may have about how courses are categorized within Degree Works.
