Studies and training in geology are designed (1) to give students an understanding of the methods of science and the fundamentals of earth science as they relate to the physical environment and our dependence on earth resources such as minerals, rocks, fuels, and water; (2) to give prospective science students the fundamentals of geology as a foundation for other science studies; (3) to provide training in geology and related earth sciences as an area of specialization for prospective elementary and secondary school teachers; and (4) to provide geology majors with a broad foundation in geology for future professional work or graduate study.
