College of Arts & Sciences Earth Sciences


Earth sciences majors earn the B.S. degree in a program with a strong liberal arts foundation – and we are the only program in the state to incorporate meteorology and oceanography. We also offer a double major with other disciplines, or you can minor in earth sciences.

You'll get hands-on experience with technological advances, such as the elective course in using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) – inputting data to plot structures in layers.

An earth sciences background can be a distinct advantage for those wanting to pursue careers in business, law, communications or government.
