The hydrogeology major gives individuals a strong background in math and the sciences, focusing on geology and hydrogeology. This major prepares students to enter both the job market and graduate programs as hydrogeologists.
The group science minor is recommended. Although it is 26 credit hours, 18 to 22 of those hours are taken as part of the hydrogeology major and are double-counted for the minor. Hence it only takes an additional 4 to 8 hours to earn the minor.
The College of Arts and Sciences offers a two-tiered advising system for undergraduates. Students receive major/minor specific advising through the faculty or staff expertise within the department and general advising regarding university and general education requirements as well as pre-professional advising through the College of Arts and Sciences Office of Undergraduate Advising.
As a student with a major within the College of Arts and Sciences, you will need to meet reqularly with both a departmental and college advisor to ensure you have met all requirements for graduation.
