Mission Statement

The Department of Earth Science’s mission is to provide students with a rewarding and dynamic educational experience. We pride ourselves on being able to offer personal attention to the needs of students with diverse backgrounds and educational goals, and to providing students with the opportunity to learn outside of the classroom in research, service-learning and internship projects. Our three degree programs (B.S. in Geology, B.S. in Environmental Science and Management, and B.S. in Earth Science Education) provide a wide range of skills and knowledge that are applicable to today´s earth science job markets, as well as a broad-based science education that´s ideal for students planning to continue to graduate programs in law, education, business, or health fields. Our Department graduates professionals who are skilled and creative and who are well prepared to contribute toward solving earth and environmental science challenges faced here in Utah and worldwide.

Depending on the specific degree and elective courses chosen, a graduate will gain particular expertise in one or more of the following areas:

  • Economic Geology
  • Environmental Science
  • Environmental Management
  • Geochemistry
  • Geographic Information Systems
  • Geologic Hazards
  • Geomorphology
  • Hydrology
  • Paleontology
  • Petrology
  • Tectonics
