About This Program

The Earth Science minor prepares students to integrate concepts and knowledge of Earth's surface, its interior and its interactions with life and water. Scientific knowledge about Earth processes and earth-life-water interactions is critical for making informed decisions in science education, public policy, public health, conservation, resource management and environmental consulting. Students in the minor gain essential knowledge of earth systems science, including the interactions of earth's atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere over both shorter (millennium) and longer (mega-annum) time periods.
