Undergraduate Degrees and Minors

A B.S. Geoscience degree allows students to specialize in Geology, Geophysics, Hydrology and Secondary Education.

Five minors in these four disciplines plus Climate Science introduce students to the essentials of each disciple, and are ideally suited to the innovative “3-D” major offered by the College of Arts and Sciences where students can custom-tailor a degree plan to fit their academic interests and career aspirations by combining three minors to constitute a major.

Certificates and Endorsements offer opportunities to obtain credentials for professional advancement.
