For further information about undergraduate degree requirements, please refer to the Undergraduate Curricular Requirements, requirements for an Academic Minor in Geology, and the University Catalog Information page.

As of the Fall 2012 semester, there are approximately 90 undergraduate geology majors in the department. Class sizes are thus generally small enough to allow significant one-on-one interaction between faculty and students. With numerous undergraduate geology courses from which to choose, and a degree program that provides students with a large degree of flexibility to tailor their degree to their own liking, an undergraduate degree in geology offers students a wealth of opportunity for preparing for a career in the geosciences.
