May be elected as a departmental concentration program
Students in this program of study earn a Bachelor of Science degree. They receive a broad foundation in natural and physical sciences related to the geology of our environment and from which they can continue either to professional work or graduate study.
Prerequisites to Concentration. There are four prerequisites, which should be completed as soon as possible:
- Introductory geological science course with laboratory (G.S. 116, 117, or 120) or an introductory geoscience course without laboratory (G.S. 119, 284 or 205+206) combined with a laboratory course (G.S. 118 or 207).
- One year of introductory chemistry with laboratory (Chem. 130/125+210/211).
- One year of Introductory Mathematics, including calculus (Math 115 and 116).
- Any two of Physics 140/141, Physics 240/241, and Biology 162.
Concentration Program. The concentration requires a minimum of 29 credits. A concentration plan must include:
- Core Courses. GS 232 (or 231), 425 (or 422), 442, and 477.
- Geoscience Electives. Two additional geological sciences courses chosen from GS 280, 305, 310, 351, 418*, 420, and 441.
* For those choosing GS 418, GS 419 [lab] is also recommended.
- Required Cognates. In addition concentrators must elect 9 credits of advanced cognate courses. These must be above the prerequisite level in biology, chemistry, mathematics, engineering, natural resources and environment, or environmental and industrial health (Public Health), or some combination thereof. A list of approved courses is available from the concentration advisor and any departure from this list must be approved in advance by the concentration advisor.
