Earth Science Minor

The Earth Science minor prepares students to integrate concepts and knowledge of Earth's surface, its interior, and its interactions with life and water. Scientific knowledge about Earth processes and earth-life-water interactions is critical for making informed decisions in science education, public policy, public health, conservation, resource management, and environmental consulting.

Students will gain essential knowledge of earth systems science, including the interactions of earth's atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and lithosphere over both shorter (millennium) and longer (mega-annum) time periods.

Students can complete the Earth Science minor in its entirety at Kent State Stark.
