Program Description

This program is designed for students who wish to pursue a bachelor’s degree at a four-year institution, majoring in Geology or a related science. According to the National Research Council, students should be able to demonstrate that:

  • ■ Science is an evidence-based way of thinking about the natural world and understanding how it operates.
  • ■ Science is a process with rules of operation that allow our understanding of the natural world to evolve.
  • ■ Science is based on reproducible evidence and observations that contain uncertainties.
  • ■ The sciences are related to each other, mathematics, and everyday life.
  • ■ Science is driven by globalization, technology, and new instrumentation and measurement tools.
  • ■ Scientific meanings of theory and law are different than popular meanings.
