The Geoscience minor draws on a foundation of the classical sciences of chemistry, physics, and biology, and applies their principles to a diverse range of processes on Earth and other planets - from landform evolution to plate tectonics to the origin and evolution of life and the interaction of humans with the environment. The Geoscience minor allows students flexibility for selecting courses that complement their learning goals and is composed of six courses of which at least one course must be at the 3000- or 4000-level. The minor is not available to students enrolled in the Geology major. Registration in senior-level course options may require successful completion of courses at the 1000-, 2000-, and/or 3000-level.
The Geoscience minor is composed of 6 courses (18 credits).
