Minor in Earth Science


The minor in Earth Science requires eighteen (18) hours in Geology (GEOL) or the combination of courses in GEOL, Geography (GEOG), and Geophysics (GEOP) of which six (6) hours must be advanced.

*Note: The natural science core requirements, for a minor in earth science, must be satisfied by a course sequence other than GEOL 1401/GEOL 1402.

**Note: The sequence GEOL 1401 and GEOL 1402 are recommended to satisfy pre-requisite requirements for upper level geology courses.
