Earth Science rocks! Through a minor in Earth Science, you’ll learn about the history of the earth, the ocean, soil and rock formations, the climate, as well as the origin and fate of the universe. Field work comes standard with all our earth science courses, and class activities will develop your skills in methodologies ranging from mineral and rock identification to analysis of geologic structures, stratigraphic relations, geophysical processes, and the instrumentation used in field research.
