Undergraduate Programs

Students considering a major in Geology or Geological Sciences should discuss their course selections with a faculty member in the Department of Earth and Climate Sciences. This is particularly important because some upper level courses are offered in alternate years. Careful planning will give students the opportunity to participate in more course offerings, optional field trips, and student-faculty research as an undergraduate.
