The Geology Major

The Geology major starts with an introduction to the fundamental principles and processes that govern the character of the earth from its surface environment to its core. Geology 111 surveys these principles and is required of all Geology majors. Geology encompasses many sub-disciplines that approach study of the earth in a variety of ways, but all share a core of knowledge about the composition and constitution of earth materials.
