Earth Science - B.A.
More About This Program
The Bachelor of Arts degree in Earth Science is designed for students who seek more advanced knowledge of Geology than the Minor in Geology, but who have other academic interests that complement their interest in Geology.
The degree is particularly useful when coupled with a minor or BA from an additional field. The B.A. in Geology can be of particular benefit to students with an interest in Education, Anthropology, Environmental Law, Architecture, Leisure Studies, Business, Political Science, Geography, Journalism and other liberal arts or science fields. Other employment opportunities include work as naturalists in parks and museums.
The program requires biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics. The Geology sequence includes courses in oceanography, minerals, rocks, fossils, and landforms, whereas that in geography includes courses in meteorology, climatology, soils, and conservation.
