The major requires 38 hours, of which a minimum of 21 hours are upper level. **GEOL 4301 Field Methods in Geology  AND GEOL 4302 Field Geology  requirements may be met by a 6 hour field experience at another approved University’s field camp. School approval required. *MATH 1306 Elementary Statistics , MSCI 2311 Scientific Computing , and MSCI 3101 Faith and Science Seminar  are required courses for all math and science majors. MATH 1306  and MSCI 2311  can each be used to fulfill three hours of general education and degree core requirements in math and computer literacy, respectively.

Notations:


Students considering graduate school should also take Research/Thesis hours and additional math, chemistry and physics courses.

Possible Sequence of Courses


Bachelor of Science in Geology Possible Sequence of Courses - the following is ONE four-year schedule that would result in the B. S. degree in geology. Many other permutations of this plan are possible including additional majors and/or minors in other disciplines. All upper-level science courses are on rotation making exact duplication of this four-year plan impossible for some students. This plan is intended as a guide only. Students are strongly encouraged to choose their courses in consultation with their advisor.
