* Students may benefit from having a minor in such fields as chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer science, geospatial analysis, or a life science, and should consult with an advisor prior to choosing an option.
All Geology students are required to meet with a faculty advisor (see above) at least annually for course and program advisement. Call 801-626-7139 for more information or to schedule an appointment. (Also refer to the Department Advisor Referral List.)
Use Grad MAPs to plan your degree
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.
Refer to Degree Requirements for either Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts requirements. MATH 1050 or MATH 1080 or MATH 1210 is recommended for the Quantitative Literacy requirement. The following courses required for the Geology major will also satisfy general education requirements: CHEM 1210 , GEO 1110 , PHYS 2010 , and PHYS 2210 .
Course Prefix GEO
The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences uses the course prefix GEO because geo means “earth.” The prefix GEO also aids in course articulation with other colleges and universities.
