1 To: USF Undergraduate Council RE: Revising Bachelor s Degree Program requirements for Geology Below is amended catalog copy describing our proposed revision of B.S. and B.A. degree requirements for the Geology major. Our current Bachelor s degree program requirements, approved in 1998, represented a fundamental advance over traditional geology curricula nationally in terms of its cross-disciplinary approach to content delivery, its incorporation of cutting-edge geoscience instructional methodologies, and its emphasis on training students in the technical and intellectual skills of practicing geoscientists. Our undergraduate programs continue to be at the cutting edge of geoscience Bachelor s programs nationally in terms of curricular innovation, and thus we are not seeking to revisit our programs pedagogical underpinnings. We are, instead, seeking to address what we see as our existing program s primary weakness its lack of flexibility, as expressed in its absence of upper-level, elective course offerings. Our current Bachelor s degree programs were designed in the context of the Geology instructional personnel available to teach the program in 1998, which then comprised seven tenure-line faculty. In the ensuing decade our Department has more than doubled in size, providing both more personnel to teach undergraduate courses, but more importantly, the opportunity to bring our students a more diverse menu of undergraduate courses that reflect the growing disciplinary diversity of the geosciences. Three new Senior-level undergraduate courses are currently in the queue for approval by the Undergraduate Council, and we will be submitting more new upper-level Geology courses for approval as they are developed. In our current programs these new courses can only be credited toward the major on a case-by-case basis, as a substitution for a required course, as there are no permitted elective offerings. The primary thing we are seeking to do with this curricular revision is make elective course options available for all of our B.S. and B.A. students. We are also seeking to clean up some issues related to supporting course requirements, and the application of the SUS Uniform Prerequisite courses that have negatively impacted some of our transfer students. The Catalog text for our revised program is included below. Underlined sections are changes from the existing program; Boldface Red text sections are explanations of said changes. A clean copy of the program is also attached, along with the original catalog copy for comparison.

2 Geology (GLY) The Department of Geology offers programs leading to Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. Geology is one of the broadest of all sciences because of its dependence on fundamentals of biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics as applied to the study of the earth. As a result, undergraduate students are expected to obtain a broad background in the other sciences as well as a concentration in geology. The Bachelor of Science degree program provides the student with a hands-on foundation in the fundamentals of the geosciences. The Bachelor of Arts program is designed primarily for the liberal arts student who has an interest in the subject but who is not preparing for a career in the field, or for the pre-professional school student. A student who elects the B.A. program and decides to pursue the geology profession or attend graduate school will need at least physics and field geology in his/her program. The graduate program in geology allows the student to pursue advanced studies in nearly all areas of geology. As a result of faculty interests and geographic location, several geologic subdisciplines are emphasized, including applied geophysics, coastal geology, geomorphology, geochemistry, hydrogeology, paleontology, petrology, volcanology and geoscience education. Prerequisites (State Mandated Common Prerequisites) Students wishing to transfer to USF should complete the A.A. degree at the community college. Some courses required for the major may also meet General Education Requirements thereby transferring maximum hours to the university. If students transfer without an A.A. degree and have fewer than 60 semester hours of acceptable credit, the students must meet the university s entering freshman requirements including ACT or SAT test scores, GPA, and course requirements. The transfer student should also be aware of the immunization, foreign language, and continuous enrollment policies of the university. Students should complete the following prerequisite courses listed below at the lower level prior to entering the University. If these courses are not taken at the community college, they (or their equivalents) must be completed before the degree is granted. Unless stated otherwise, a grade of C is the minimum acceptable grade. CHM 1045/1045L General Chemistry I (with lab) or CHM 1045C or CHM 1045E CHM 1046/1046L General Chemistry II (with lab) or CHM 1046C or CHM 1046E GLY 2010C Introduction to Physical Geology MAC 2311 Calculus I PHY 2048C General Physics and Laboratory I or PHY 2048/2048L or PHY 2053C

3 PHY 2049C General Physics and Laboratory II or PHY 2049/2049L or PHY 2054C The physics sequence chosen depends on the area of geology specialization. Requirements for the Major in Geology (BA) 1) Geology courses (36 hours): a. Introductory Sequence* (4 hours): 1) One course chosen from GLY 2010, GLY 2030, GLY 2100, or other comparable acceptable course offerings, as approved by the Undergraduate Advisor (3) 2) GLY 2000L (1) * Transfer students who have taken GLY 2010C and GLY 2100C or the equivalent will be deemed to have met the introductory sequence requirements. However, ALL students are strongly encouraged to take GLY 2000L, as this course will greatly facilitate success in the upper-level offerings. [This change is being made to ensure that all students entering Geology degree programs have taken a live introductory Geology course, as our recent experiences indicate that students who have taken only online Geology offerings have greater difficulty in subsequent GLY courses. All three of the listed courses are in queue for approval by the General Education Council as live offerings. The primary difference between this new entry requirement and our old one is that students taking GLY 2000 or OCE 2001 will no longer be able to count this course toward Geology degrees without approval from the Undergraduate Advisor.] b. Core Courses: required (20 hours) GLY 3311C The Solid Earth: Petrology and Geochemistry (4) GLY 3402C Plate Tectonics and Earth Structure (4) GLY 3552C The Sedimentary Record (4) GLY 3720C The Fluid Earth, or GLY 4822C Introduction to Hydrogeology (4) GLY 4104C Geologic Time (4) (Requirement is waived for students who have taken GLY2010, GLY 2000L or GLY 2010L, AND GLY 2100, GLY 2100L) c. Upper-Level Electives: (12 hours) GLY 4554C The Earth s Surface (4)

4 GLY 4104C Geologic Time (if not counted toward Core requirements above) (4) GLY 4610C Volcanology (4) GLY 4448 Geomechanics (4) GLY 4480 Introduction to Seismology (4) GLY 3720C The Fluid Earth, or GLY 4822C, Introduction to Hydrogeology (4) GLY 4310C Petrology (4) GLY 4866 Computational Geology (3) GLY 4921 GeoCommunication (3) GLY 4780 Geologic Field Studies (3) And/or other level GLY courses, as approved by the Undergraduate Advisor 2. Supporting Courses for the B.A. Degree (24 hours): * CHM 2045, 2045L, CHM 2046, 2046L * MAC 2281, 2282 (recommended), or MAC 2241, 2242, or MAC 2311, 2312 * PHY PHY 2048, 2048L, PHY 2049, 2049L (recommended) or PHY 2053, 2053L, PHY 2054, 2054L [This change makes our B.A. supporting course requirements compliant with the current SUS Uniform Prerequisite Courses for Geology. While we disagree with the application of these requirements to the B.A. degree, they are requirements for graduation for any student seeking a Geology Bachelor s degree from an SUS institution. We are presently seeking to change the B.A. Uniform Prerequisite requirements through discussions with the appropriate SUS committees.] Requirements for the Major in Geology (BS) 1) Geology courses (44 hours): a. Introductory Sequence* (4 hours): 1) One course chosen from GLY 2010, GLY 2030, GLY 2100, or other comparable acceptable course offerings, as approved by the Undergraduate Advisor (3) 2) GLY 2000L (1) * Transfer students who have taken GLY 2010C and GLY 2100C or the equivalent will be deemed to have met the introductory sequence requirements. However, ALL students are strongly encouraged to take GLY 2000L, as this course will greatly facilitate success in the upper-level offerings. [As noted above, this change is being made to ensure that all students entering Geology degree programs have taken a live introductory Geology course, as our

5 recent experiences indicate that students who have taken only online Geology offerings have greater difficulty in subsequent GLY courses. All three of the listed courses are in queue for approval by the General Education Council as live offerings. The primary difference between this new entry requirement and our old one is that students taking GLY 2000 or OCE 2001 will no longer be able to count this course toward Geology degrees without approval from the Undergraduate Advisor.] b. Core Courses: required (20 hours) GLY 3311C The Solid Earth: Petrology and Geochemistry (4) GLY 3402C Plate Tectonics and Earth Structure (4) GLY 3552C The Sedimentary Record (4) GLY 3720C The Fluid Earth, or GLY 4822C Introduction to Hydrogeology (4) GLY 4104C Geologic Time (4) (Requirement is waived for students who have taken GLY2010, GLY 2000L or GLY 2010L, AND GLY 2100, GLY 2100L) [As noted above, this change is being made to ensure that all students entering Geology degree programs have taken a live introductory Geology course, as our recent experiences indicate that students who have taken only online Geology offerings have greater difficulty in subsequent GLY courses. All three of the listed courses are in queue for approval by the General Education Council as live offerings. The primary difference between this new entry requirement and our old one is that students taking GLY 2000 or OCE 2001 will no longer be able to count this course toward Geology degrees without approval from the Undergraduate Advisor.] c. Upper-Level Electives: (14 hours) GLY 4554C The Earth s Surface (4) GLY 4104C Geologic Time (if not counted toward Core requirements above) (4) GLY 4610C Volcanology (4) GLY 4448 Geomechanics (4) GLY 4480 Introduction to Seismology (4) GLY 3720C The Fluid Earth, or GLY 4822C, Introduction to Hydrogeology (4) GLY 4310C Petrology (4) GLY 4866 Computational Geology (3) GLY 4921 GeoCommunication (3) GLY 4780 Geologic Field Studies (3) And/or other level GLY courses, as approved by the Undergraduate Advisor

6 Quantitative Requirement: Of these electives, at least six hours must be drawn from courses identified by the Department as including high quantitative content. Courses which meet this requirement include: GLY 4866, GLY 4822C, GLY 4610C, GLY 4448, GLY Others may be approved by the Undergraduate Advisor [The Department feels it is important that all B.S. students be grounded in the quantitative aspects of Geology. This requirement ensures that students cannot skirt around the hard quantitative courses through the clever selection of electives.] d. Capstone sequence (6 hours) 6 hours of GLY 4947L/4948L/4949L (1 credit of each of these and any combination for the remaining 3 credits), or an Approved Geology field course. 2. Supporting Courses for the B.S. Degree (28 hours): * CHM 2045, 2045L, CHM 2046, 2046L * MAC 2281, 2282 (recommended) or MAC 2311, 2312 * PHY PHY 2048, 2048L, PHY 2049, 2049L (recommended) or PHY 2053, 2053L, PHY 2054, 2054L * BSC 2010, 2010L Liberal Arts Requirements All students are required to complete the University s Liberal Arts Requirements. Free Electives (19-25 hours) The student will choose, in consultation with his/her geology advisor, such courses in the natural sciences that support his/her major interest in the field of geology. Courses in computer programming and additional mathematics are of particular value. Those students who anticipate continuing for a doctorate in graduate school are encouraged to take a foreign language, preferably French, German, or Russian. D and F grades earned in attempting to satisfy major requirements will be used in calculating the major GPA. Geology Honors Program The purpose of the Honors Program is to provide a select group of undergraduate geology majors an opportunity to undertake an intensive, individualized research experience. The culmination of the program is the completion and presentation of an honor s thesis. To apply, interested students should contact the Geology Undergraduate Advisor during the second semester of the student s junior year. Admission to the program requires a GPA of 3.5 in the major and an overall GPA of 3.2.

7 Requirements for the Minor in Geology 16 credit hours are required, which must include the completion of the introductory sequence courses (4 hours) and any three Geology Core courses (12 hours). Teacher Education Programs Prospective elementary and secondary school teachers desiring to teach science should include basic courses in geology and related sciences as part of their curriculum.
