The Geosciences Major provides students with an opportunity to understand the Earth, including processes that have shaped its past and those that will shape its future, and the relationships among place, landscape, climate, culture, economy, and people. Students can choose one of three emphases: Geology, Geoarchaeology, or Geographical Science.

Geology is for those students interested in understanding how the Earth works presently and what has happened in Earth's ancient past. Students who choose this track will learn especially about our environment and its processes, stories of Earth's past, and the formation and extraction of natural resources of the Earth.
