Geosciences is the study of the Earth in all its complexities, from the investigation of minerals and rocks, natural resources, evolution of plants and animals, climate change, natural hazards caused by earthquakes, horrendous weather, or careless human engineering, to the tools of geospatial science used to map out and visually portray our land. This major is only offered in a Bachelor of Science, and a minor is not required.

There are four concentrations within the Geosciences major:

  • Geospatial Science Concentration
  • Paleontology Concentration
