Geosciences Courses & Curriculum

A degree in Geosciences provides a strong foundation in the study of the Earth, and as you progress through the program, you will narrow your focus to one of the two emphases, depending on your career interest.

Geoarchaeology uses geological, chemical, biological and physical methods to understand the relationships between past human cultures and their environments. This track explores the geological, chemical, biological and physical methods for interpreting artifacts, sediments and environments important in understanding our human past. 

Geographical Science considers the relationship among place, people and environment. You will learn more about the distribution of climate, cultures and landscapes on Earth, the reason for these distributions and the way they interact and effect humans and our cultures.

The flexibility and concentration of the major provides a great option to double major or minor in another field while still completing the degree in four years.
