Program Learning Outcomes for BA in Earth Science Students graduating from this program will: Demonstrate a basic understanding of the structure and composition of the Earth. This understanding should be adequate to support the incorporation of Earth science knowledge into the study and practice of a field other than Earth science. Demonstrate a basic understanding of the processes that lead to the formation of the Earth, that control its evolution, and that operate to change the Earth today. This understanding should be adequate to support the incorporation of Earth science knowledge into the study and practice of a field other than Earth science. Understand concepts and methods learned in introductory university mathematics and science classes and how they are used in describing and learning about the Earth.
