Several Degrees to Choose From

Our degrees will not only teach you what you need to be successful in the geoscience workforce and/or graduate school, they'll also help you identify the geoscience specialties that best match your career goals.

Our different bachelor degree programs offer great flexibility as you decide what aspect of the geosciences is of most interest to you. If you aspire to go to graduate school and/or secure a job with the title "Geologist" or "Hydrologist", we suggest the Geology BS program. If you are looking for an entry-level position in the broad areas of environmental science or applied geoscience, the Applied Environmental Geoscience BS degree would be best for you. Those students seeking a career as a secondary science teacher should declare a major in Earth Science Teaching (BS). The bachelor of arts (BA) in Geology gives students great flexibility in course selection and could be used to prepare for law school (with a specialty in environmental law), for a military career, or for work as a park naturalist. 

All students are urged to touch base with the Department early in their college careers. At that time you will be matched with the appropriate advisor, who can help you plan your semester schedules and offer guidance related to career options.
