Geology is the study of processes occurring in or on the earth. The B.S. in Geology prepares students for careers or graduate education in fields such as resource exploration, hydrogeology, or environmental geology. Disciplines within the geological sciences are directed towards understanding the terrestrial system from the core of the Earth to beyond our solar system. Students will conduct applied and basic research in an effort to understand physical processes on and within the earth, and human influences that affect the environment.
