The Bachelor of Science in geology is designed for students pursuing a career in geology after graduation and for those planning to attend graduate school. The Bachelor of Science in geology requires 54 hours of geology courses and 22-23 credits in other disciplines. 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.
