Minor in Geology
A minor in geology may be completed by taking Geology 100 and 100L (or 201), 102 and 102L, and additional credits at the 300-level or above for a total of 15 credits. A total of 9 credits must be unique to the minor and cannot be counted for both the major and the minor field of study. The minor will appear on the undergraduate transcript. Although it does not provide adequate preparation for a career in geology, the minor will provide a core experience that can augment a professional degree in environmental science or any field of physical science, agronomy, or engineering.
Minor in Meteorology
The department offers a minor in Meteorology which may be earned by completing 15 credits including Mteor 111, Mteor 206 and Mteor 301. Note that only one credit of Mteor 111 and no credits of Mteor 324 can count toward the minor. Further information concerning programs of study, including sample degree programs, is available from the department.
Minor in Geographic Information Systems
A minor in Geographic Information systems (GIS), offered by the College of Design, is complementary to the Geology Program and would be useful in a variety of geology careers
