The Geology minor is designed to improve students’ understanding of geologic processes and how these processes fit into environmental issues. The program takes advantage of the unique natural setting of Colorado to allow students to deepen and expand their appreciation of nearly two billion years of local geologic history. The emphasis of the minor is the understanding of geologic processes that have shaped Colorado.
The Geology minor requires a minimum of 23 credit hours of GES course work, 11 of which must be upper-division (3000+ level). All courses must be completed with a grade of C- or better.
