The geology program has three major functions:

  1. To prepare environmental sciences majors with a concentration in geoscience for entrance into graduate schools in environmental science, geology or law;
  2. To provide courses in geology for general education requirements and middle school teacher certification, and
  3. To benefit anyone seeking a minor in college.
