A minor in Geology will serve students who wish to expand the application of their major with a geology background. These skills will complement a variety of careers, including careers in science, business, law, political science and environmental management. Building on introductory courses that include a survey of geological processes and interpretation of the Earth’s past, students are encouraged to choose upper-level courses that will complement their career goals. The upper-level requirements will offer students the choice of focusing on topics such as structural geology, petroleum geology, geochemistry and natural disasters. All courses completed for minor credit must receive a grade of C or better.
