Senate Motion #2019-04

Motion Introduced by: Curriculum and Academic Programs Committee,

Date of First Reading: August 27, 2018

Date of Second Reading: September 24, 2018

Title of Motion: Request from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences – School of Earth and Space Exploration - for the establishment of an undergraduate certificate – Field Geology

Action Requested: This curricular proposal has received all college, school, unit and university administrative approvals, and is being presented to the Senate for review and voting decision.  

Rationale: The certificate in field geology prepares undergraduate students with the core knowledge-base and field experience to identify, describe, collect and interpret a variety of types of geological field data. A strong field-based background is required for many entry-level jobs in resource mining, geotechnical, and environmental consulting companies, as well as being strongly desired for many graduate research programs in the earth sciences.
