Earth Science Minor

The earth science minor complements any major and provides students with knowledge and skills in the geosciences. Students learn how to work with spatial data, explore how earth’s surface has been shaped over time, investigate geological processes that lead to natural hazards for people, and study earth’s changing climate, among other topics in the geosciences. Flexibility in choosing elective courses in the minor allow students the opportunity to pursue both broad and specific interests in the field.
