Geoscience, sometimes called earth science, is a multidisciplinary field that is a study of the features, processes and history of the earth. It includes courses in geology, oceanography, environmental geology, and conservation of natural resources. As a field of study, it provides you with the opportunity to deal with a broad range of scientific challenges and experiences.
Pacific Lutheran University offers a unique setting for the study of geosciences. The natural environments of the Pacific Northwest region are unsurpassed in providing a rich variety of geologic field studies in the Cascade Mountains, the Columbia River Basalt Plateau, the coastal areas of the Puget Sound, the Pacific Ocean, and Olympic Peninsula.
