The major in earth science spans the entire breadth of the earth sciences: atmospheric, hydrologic, and geologic sciences, while allowing considerable flexibility in selecting courses. It is specifically designed to provide a broad, well-rounded background for students who are planning careers in secondary or elementary education. The earth science major can also provide a useful scientific background as a second major for students in political science, criminal justice, business, economics, English, communications, computational sciences, or computer sciences. In combination with one of those majors, a student could pursue a career in national or state park service, or computer applications to the earth sciences.
Note: A graduate degree program may be necessary for some of these professions.
