The Department offers a minor in geology for undergraduate students. The minor consists of twenty credits in geology (usually consisting of five courses). Although desirable courses for a student’s minor program should be determined in consultation with Geology Department staff members, the following restrictions and recommendations should be noted: The minor must include GEL 1010 and GEL 1020. GEL 1000 and GEL 1050 may only be applied for credit to a minor with the permission of the student’s advisor in consultation with the Chairperson of the Department. At least four credits in the minor must be completed in courses at the 3000-level or higher. All minor programs must be approved by the Department Chairperson.
Anyone wishing to complete a minor in geology should contact the Department advisor as soon as possible, so that an appropriate program can be formulated.
