College of Science
Within the geology and geophysics major, students can select elective courses to focus their study on areas such as basin analysis, biogeochemistry, engineering geology, geochemistry, geomechanics, geomorphology, geophysics, hydrogeology, paleontology, planetary science, sedimentology/stratigraphy, structural geology, and tectonics. The Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences (EAPS) Department has a low faculty-to-student ratio, which allows students to have a lot of one-on-one interaction with their professors. All undergraduates are encouraged to take part in research.
