COASTAL GEOLOGY MINOR

The curriculum in the coastal geology minor is designed to provide the student with a thorough education in geologic processes and features typical of coastal areas. The program provides rigorous education and practical field experience for students preparing for a career or graduate education in coastal geological studies.

Students interested in pursuing the Coastal Geology minor should consult with their major adviser and the coordinator of the geology minor to plan their program of study as early as possible. A student must earn a grade of C or better in all courses to be applied toward the minor in Coastal Geology.
