The Department of Geosciences offers degrees in geoscience with concentrations in geology, geography, and related fields. Our faculty have strengths in geology, geography, environmental science, GIS and remote sensing. The Department of Geosciences is grounded in the natural sciences while being academically engaged with the cultural and social processes that shape and create the unique landscapes of our world. The Department of Geosciences provides an open door for people with wide and diverse backgrounds. Students earning a degree in the Department of Geosciences investigate human-environment interactions using advanced analytical skills and the application of geoscience techniques. Through faculty-student driven research and an innovative curriculum we prepare our students for success in the professional job market and graduate studies.
