Students pursuing a career in the field of geology or students planning to attend graduate school - earning either a Master of Science in teaching or in geology - should complete the Bachelor of Science degree. Upon completion of the requirements for a Bachelor of Science degree, students are eligible to take the Geologist Registrants in Training Exam, which is the first requirement toward professional registration. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of this program, a minor is not required for the Bachelor of Science degree in geology.
Special graduation requirements: A grade of C- or better must be earned in all geology courses counting toward the major. Students interested in the application of geology in environmental studies may take courses emphasizing hydrogeology.
