Various Paths to a Geology Degree at WKU

 

Choose a Path

Here are several lists that the Geology Faculty have created that align with our major research and education foci. These paths assume that you start your WKU education predeclared as a Geology Major. There is a lot of flexibility here, so do not think that these are the only options. Also, if you declare Geology as your major in your sophomore or junior year, we will be creating a new geology track sheet that address those concerns. But in the mean time, see a Geology advisor to discuss this in more detail.

First, download the General Geology Track Sheet for the B.S. here

Second, replace "Geology Electives" in the track sheet with those you have discussed with your advisor. Example tracks are below:

 

Paths for the Geology B.S. *
   
 
Example Path
Elective Courses that Define Path
