B.A. in Geology with Composite Science Teacher Certification (UTeach Arlington)

The Composite Science Teacher Certification Option is for students who want teacher certification, which is offered through the College of Science’s UTeach Arlington program.


Certification in Geographic Information Systems is designed for students in non-Earth and Environmental Sciences majors who want to become proficient in spatial data analysis, which is used in business, liberal arts, engineering and architecture disciplines.


This is a certification program and it does not lead to a second major or minor. However, students may use these courses to count towards a Geology minor. Students who are in the Geology B.A. Geographic Information Systems Option or Geoinformatics B.S. degree plans may not also earn this certificate, as the certificate courses are required for those degrees.


Students must obtain a 3.0 cumulative GPA in the required courses in order to earn the certificate.
