Geography, Geology and the Environment

 The environmental geoscience (BA) focuses on providing students with a scientific understanding of the Earth and surrounding environment. The student in geology gains an understanding of the various terrestrial processes and features (mountains, oceans, volcanoes, glaciers); the immenseness of geologic time, the history of the earth and organisms that inhabit it (fossils); the role of water, fuel, and mineral resources in the development of civilization; and the close interaction between the geologic and organic environments.

Students seeking state certification in secondary education must also complete requirements for a Master of Education degree, a one-year program at SRU.  All of our programs are designed to steadily develop the quantitative, deductive and inductive reasoning skills that environmental geoscientists must have.
