Geoscience majors are varied in background and interests. However, most students in this discipline share a common concern of people-environment relationships and foster a desire to better understand the interrelationships of these phenomena. In order to succeed well in the discipline, prospective majors should have the potential to achieve cartographic and/or statistical skills; possession of these skills will enable them to better synthesize and interpret geographic data. Having the ability to express their findings in a clear straightforward manner will also contribute to their success in the field.

B.A. in Geoscience may be completed in one of two tracks:

Geography – students may select one of the following concentrations:

  • Human Geography
  • Geographic Information Science (GIS)
  • Environmental Geoscience
  • Physical Geography
