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 Geology-Physics/Math This program is recommended for students interested in graduate study and careers in geophysics, climate science and related fields. Students will be prepared to understand and use models, make measurements, and use theories of the processes studied in these fields. Some course requirements may be flexible based on consultation with concentration advisor. Twenty (20) concentration courses: GEOL 0220, GEOL 1430, and GEOL 1610 One of: GEOL 0250, GEOL 0350 Either the solid Earth geophysics theme: GEOL 0230, GEOL 1450, and GEOL 1620 Two from: GEOL 1410, GEOL 1420, GEOL 1560, GEOL 1650, a field course Or the climate science theme: GEOL 0240 One of: GEOL 1510, GEOL 1520 Three from**: GEOL 1130, GEOL 1310, GEOL 1330, GEOL 1510, GEOL 1520, a field or sea course One of: PHYS 0050, PHYS 0070, ENGN 0040 One of**: PHYS 0060, ENGN 0310, ENGN 0810 Two of**: PHYS 0470, PHYS 0500, PHYS 1600, ENGN 0510, ENGN 0810, ENGN 1370, GEOL 1820 (ENGN 0810 or GEOL 1820 recommended for climate science theme) Three courses in mathematics, including APMA 0330 or APMA 0340 CHEM 0330 (or advanced placement) Two additional courses from upper level geological sciences, mathematics, or supporting sciences with approval from the departmental concentration advisor* GEOL 1970 (Senior Research Thesis) *In addition to courses listed elsewhere in the Geology-Physics/Math concentrations, these courses are of particular relevance: GEOL 0810, GEOL 1320, GEOL 1370, GEOL 1710, GEOL 1960A.
