1 Geology Administered by the Department of Physical Sciences within the College of Arts and Sciences. The Bachelor of Science degree in Geology prepares students for entry-level positions in Earth- Science-related professions especially in the petroleum and mining industries, environmental geology, graduate school, and teaching. The Geology curriculum provides students with an excellent theoretical and practical background, but is not so narrowly focused as to limit opportunities in a rapidly changing market place. Because rocks belonging to almost all geologic systems do not crop out in the Permian Basin, field studies serve as a capstone experience of the curriculum and thus are a very important curricular component. Students who are unable to take the capstone Summer Field Geology Course can complete their degree by taking two additional upper level courses in Geology, but must be aware of the consequences of this alternative. Students making this two courses election understand that their future employment opportunities after graduation will be strongly limited because government positions or graduate studies require the Summer Field Geology Course The Geology program features three basic degree plans: a General Geology Pre-Professional Plan, a Petroleum Geology Plan, and a Paleontology Plan. Degree Requirements All Plans The total semester credit hours required for a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology, regardless of plan, is 120. General Education Degree Requirements 42 credit hours Students must complete the requirements shown in the General Education Requirements section of this catalog. Additional Mathematics and Science Requirements 23 credit hours Mathematics Requirement: MATH 2413 (4) and, PSYC 3301 (3) or SOCI 3317 (3) or other Statistics course approved by advisor. Geology Requirement: GEOL 1301/1101 (4) and 1302/1102 (4) Other Science Requirements: CHEM 1311/1111 (4) and 1312/1112 (4) PHYS 1301/1101 (4) or 2325/2125 (4) RECOMMEND: PHYS 1302/1102 (4) OR PHYS 2306/2126 (4) and/or substitute two (2) upper level Geology courses in place of Physics courses. See Paleontology Plan for additional science requirements. University of Texas of the Permian Basin Undergraduate Catalog 202

2 Degree Requirements: GENERAL Geology Pre-Professional Plan The General Geology Pre-Professional Plan in the Department of Physical Sciences is designed for students who are planning to pursue graduate degrees in Geology or who prefer to have all potential B.S. employment options available to them. The B.S. in Geology degree enables students to work as geologists for private or governmental employers in environmental science, for most mining companies, and, with appropriate education courses, as K-12 teachers of Earth Science or Geology. A Bachelor of Science degree will also enable a person to work as a geotechnician in the petroleum industry. Because UTPB does not offer a Summer Field Geology Course, it must be taken at a University that offers it. Those credits are then transferred back to UTPB. Students must obtain their advisor s approval for the specific institution selected for that Summer Field Geology Course (6 credit hours) and the transcript will reflect the course number used by the institution from which they took the course. Core 34 credit hours Take all of the following: GEOL 3303/3103 (4) Mineralogy GEOL 3304/3104 (4) Igneous and Metamorphic Rocks GEOL 3305/3105 (4) Structural Geology GEOL 3307/3107 (4) Invertebrate Paleontology GEOL 3308/3108 (4) Sedimentary Rocks GEOL 3309 (3) Sequence Stratigraphy GEOL 3329/3129 (4) GIS and GPS Applications GEOL 4100 (1) Basic Field Methods GEOL XXXX (6) Summer Field Geology Course Geology Electives: Courses as needed to complete the required 120 hours. Minor Minors may be completed from any discipline, but one of the following is strongly recommended: Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Energy Studies, or Mathematics. Degree Requirements: PETROLEUM Geology Plan The Petroleum Geology Plan in the Department of Physical Sciences is designed for students who intend to pursue employment in the petroleum industry or in state or federal agencies that regulate the petroleum industry. Most oil companies hire B.S. level geologists as geotechnicians; thus the opportunity for a full-fledged geologist position typically requires a graduate degree. However, a foot in the door as a geotechnician means excellent pay and the opportunity for your employer to pay for your graduate education. Because UTPB does not offer a Summer Field Geology Course, students must take it at a University that offers it, and transfer those credits back to UTPB. They must obtain their advisor s approval for the specific institution selected for that Summer Field Geology Course (6 credit hours) and the transcript will reflect the course number used by the institution from which they took the course. See above information of the less desirable alternative, two additional upper level courses in Geology. University of Texas of the Permian Basin Undergraduate Catalog 203

Degree Requirements: PALEONTOLOGY Plan The Paleontology Plan in the Department of Physical Sciences is designed for students with an interest in Geology and Biology. The B.S. in Geology with the Paleontology Plan provides students with an excellent theoretical and practical background in Geology with a specialization in invertebrate, vertebrate, or micro- fossils. It provides the background needed for students seeking employment with natural history museums. Additionally, some job opportunities for micropaleontologists exist in the petroleum industry, normally for those with an M.S. degree. This plan is required for an M.S. in Paleontology. Because UTPB does not offer a Summer Field Geology Course, students must take it at a University that offers it, and transfer those credits back to UTPB. They must obtain their advisor s approval for the specific institution selected for that Summer Field Geology Course (6 credit hours) and the transcript will reflect the course number used by the institution from which they took the course.
