PART OF THE SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY AND SUSTAINABILITY FLIGHT PATH Minor: Earth Sciences
Students in the Department of Earth Sciences learn about the minerals, rocks, soil, ice, biota, and waters that compose the Earth, and the processes that shape the Earth from its interior to the surface. Earth Science applies the basic sciences of physics, biology, chemistry, and mathematics to understand processes that have shaped the earth throughout the 4.5 billion years of geologic time. Earth scientists combine field investigations with laboratory experiments and theoretical studies. Students with majors in other departments who want a minor in geological sciences can earn a minor through the department of Earth Sciences.
