TENSCI: Geoscience Option

Main page content

Geoscience is one of three study options under the Environmental Science major. Within the Environmental Science major, students are guided to additional coursework in biology, geology, ecology, and other earth systems and are given the opportunity to develop deeper skills in methods applicable to these areas. Our faculty’s teaching and research interests span these topics and more. Our program emphasizes high impact practices such as undergraduate research, experiential and active learning, internships, and service learning, and projects that are use-inspired and community engaged.
