Overview

Our program is designed to provide each student with a strong, broad background for a B.S. in geology and/or geography, yet is sufficiently flexible to allow students freedom to follow their own interests. The student may choose either general geology or geography with a general, environmental, or geographic techniques/spatial analysis emphasis. Ample opportunity is available for independent student research and internships in the student's chosen field of study. Such research is an integral part of the curriculum regardless of the option chosen.

Concentrations

General Geography, Environmental Studies, Geographic Techniques/Spatial Analysis, International Studies
