The Geosciences are concerned with the Earth, its origin, composition, and evolution through time as well as studying the processes that affect the Earth and the life forms that have lived on it in the past. Many geoscience applications use computer technology (GIS and Remote Sensing) for mapping the Earth and modeling the processes that affect the planet. The department offers bachelor's degrees in Geology, Applied Environmental Geosciences, and Earth Science Teaching, and an option in the Physical Science Composite Teaching Major. A Geology Minor, Earth Science Teaching Minor, and a Geospatial Analysis Minor are available.  An Institutional Certificate in Geomatics (Applied Computer Mapping) is also available.
