We encourage students of all backgrounds to learn more about how the land, water, and air around us directly affect our lives, whether by taking one course, or several, or a concentration program with independent research. Our faculty offer courses in which they share their expertise and enthusiasm for the geological sciences with non-science and non-geology concentrators. These courses can be an enjoyable and meaningful part of a liberal arts education at Brown, in part thanks to the Department's strong focus on developing students' communication and critical thinking skills. Standard Program for the Sc.B. Degree in Geological Sciences: This program is recommended for students interested in graduate study and careers in the geosciences and related fields. Five basic supporting science courses: Two courses in mathematics at the level of MATH 0090, 0100 (or another more advanced math or statistics course. CHEM 0330 (or advanced placement). PHYS 0050, 0060, ENGR 0030, 0040, or more advanced. (Advanced placement may be substituted for the first semester of physics.) Fourteen (14) concentration courses: GEOL 0220, 0230, 0240, 0310, 1240, 1410, 1420, 1450, and a field course. Four courses from upper level geological sciences, mathematics, or supporting sciences with approval from the departmental concentration advisor. GEOL 1970 (Senior Research Thesis).
