Admission Requirements

Declare your program of study (see Enrollment Services and Information ). No special admission or application requirements are needed for this program. However, students should meet with an advisor to plan and declare their program of study.

General Education

Refer to Degree Requirements  for Bachelor of Science requirements. MATH 1050  or MATH 1080  is recommended for the Quantitative Literacy requirement. The following courses required for the Applied Environmental Geoscience major will also satisfy general education requirements: CHEM 1210 , GEO 1060 , GEO 1110 , PHYS 2010 , and PHYS 2210 .

Major Course Requirements for BS Degree


Note:


* No more than 4 combined credit hours from GEO 4800  and GEO 4970  may be counted toward the major requirements.

Note:


*Students planning to attend graduate school in Geology or a related geotechnical area should take PHYS 2210 -PHYS 2220 , Physics for Scientists & Engineers, instead of the General Physics series (PHYS 2010 -PHYS 2020 ).

**Students planning to attend graduate school in Geology or a related geotechnical area should also take MATH 1210 /MATH 1220 , Calculus I and II (8).

Students planning a career or advanced degree in geospatial applications are encouraged to complete the Geomatics certificate program. Students planning a career or advanced degree in geotechnical applications are encouraged to take GEO 3060 , GEO 3880 , GEO 4100 , and GEO 4150  as electives. Course work in microbiology, especially Environmental Microbiology (MICR 3484 ), is recommended for students pursuing environmental or remediation-related careers.
