About the Major
The Geology Department offers two degrees, the Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of Arts.

Bachelor of Arts
A major in geology leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree is recommended for students interested in careers outside of science, including business, law, or policy and requires 36 credits. The same sort of rationale to developing a schedule underlies the B. A. Geology Major
program as does the B. S. Geology Major, but more Chemistry and Physics are not required.
