The Department of Earth and Biological Sciences offers a program leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in geology. This program provides the student with a field-oriented education, emphasizing the application of geological principles. Sedimentary geology, paleontology, igneous petrology, and environmental geology are areas of emphasis. The curriculum is designed as a degree-completion program; two years of college-level coursework should be completed before admission. The integrated core course sequence provides the background to take the National Association of State Boards of Geology (ASBOG) Fundamentals of Geology (FG) examination leading to Geologist-In-Training (GIT) certification. The program aims to maintain affordability through tuition rates and scholarships.
The Department of Earth and Biological Sciences offers the Master of Science in geology degree. Coursework and research culminating in a thesis emphasize field and laboratory studies in sedimentology, paleontology, igneous petrology, and environmental geology. Research in paleontology may also be pursued through the M.S. and Ph.D. degree curricula in biology and through the Ph.D. degree curriculum in earth science.
