BA or BS in Geology

BS and BA in Geology (No Concentrations)

The BA and BS in Geology are standard geology degrees that produce well-rounded graduates who are prepared to go to graduate school or directly into industry.

The BS Geology program of study is our most flexible degree in the program, with the most opportunities for electives. If you are not sure what field of geology you want to go into, we recommend this track. Even if you want to go into the environmental industry, this program of study will work for you as well.

The BA in Geology has the same coursework as the BS, but also requires a minor and a foreign langauge component. Students who are double majoring in a BA-granting degree track typically use this degree track.

Both programs of study require 6 credits of approved field courses, typically offered during the summer. These may be taken all at once, or spread out through your career.
