BA - Earth Sciences

Program Number: 0459

The earth is a dynamic planet which provides us with the energy and raw materials necessary for modern life. The earth is also a fragile planet whose delicate environmental balance may be easily upset. Geologists study the earth, its composition, history, and dynamic systems, in an effort to ensure the rapidly growing human population with adequate supplies of natural resources to maintain the delicate balance of its environment.

The Department of Geosciences at Edinboro University offers a broad range of earth science courses leading to either a Bachelor of Science in Geology or Bachelor of Arts degree in the earth sciences. The Bachelor of Arts in Earth Sciences provides a broad based exposure to the earth sciences with fewer related requirements in math and science.
