The Geology Concentration offers a true interdisciplinary approach to science. Geologists employ aspects of Biology, Chemistry, Geography, Mathematics, and Physics to more fully understand the earth´s history and processes. Geologists are broadly prepared in the natural sciences and have diverse field and laboratory experience with minerals, rocks, and fossils. The Geology Concentration is intended for students who intend to pursue a career in the private sector, local, state and federal government, and as a preparation for graduate studies.
