A Minor in Geology is available to students of all majors. This minor consists of two lower-level courses (GEOL 1121k and GEOL 1122k) as well as Mineralogy (GEOL 3101), Petrology (GEOL 3102) and at least three additional upper-division hours in geology. Geology is the study of Earth’s materials, their composition, how they change over long spans of time, and ways that humans utilize natural resources. These courses teach a variety of analytic techniques both in the classroom and in the field. Skills honed in this minor augment students’ preparation for employment in the public or private sector or pursuit of graduate education.
