General Earth Science
The General Earth Science track is appropriate for those interested in elementary or secondary school teaching. In addition to formal coursework, independent studies and internships offer students the opportunity to integrate field, laboratory, technical writing, and/or computer skills in the investigation of environmental problems.
The department’s primary objective is to prepare its majors for positions as environmental technicians/scientists, environmental analysts, or earth science teachers. Prospective teachers should consult the Education Department for certification requirements. The department also encourages its majors to pursue graduate studies.
