The undergraduate degree in Geology is focused on learning about the major earth systems and the geologic processes that create and shape them. Study of geologic systems includes coursework to develop an in-depth understanding of earth surface processes, earth materials and geochemistry, structure and tectonics, rock forming processes and paleoecology. Skills in interpreting geological data are gained through work in the classroom, laboratory, computer simulations, and in the field.
