The Department of Geology offers a BA and a BSc in Geology, along with an interdisciplinary BSc degree in Environmental Science.
The Geology program consists of a traditional core curriculum with electives that are primarily in the realm of environmental Science. Candidates for the BA and BSc degrees in Geology must complete 120 credits of course work including satisfaction of the College Group Requirements and the University General Education Requirements, in addition to the Geology major requirements. Most upper level courses involve both a laboratory and a field component. Students are required to satisfactorily complete a Writing Intensive Course, and to complete 6 credits of Geology Field Camp.
The Department has an active Geology Club, and a yearly spring field trip to exciting locations such as the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone and the Tetons. In addition to aid available through WSU (http://www.financialaid.wayne.edu), financial assistance is available through summer internships in field geology, and as student assistants in the Physical Geology laboratory.
Environmental Science Program
The Environmental Science Program offers an interdisciplinary approach to the subject by combining courses from the Departments of Biological Sciences and Geology. The curriculum consists of core and environmental Geology courses that examine the characteristics and management of geological resources, geological hazards and environmental pollution. The curriculum includes courses from Biological Sciences that involve the study of macro– and micro-biota, and ecological analysis of environ-mental systems. Candidates for the B. S. degrees in Environmental Science must complete 120 credits of course work including satisfaction of the College Group Requirements and the University General Education Requirements, in addition to Environmental Science major requirements.
