Majors & Minors
The geology minor provides an opportunity for students majoring in the social sciences and the other sciences to relate their major field of study to issues concerning the environment and particularly to geological aspects of land-use. The geology minor is especially appropriate for majors in archeology, anthropology, economics, environmental studies, political science, sociology and the other sciences who anticipate careers in government or industry that will involve issues of public policy concerning the environment.
Geology is an ideal subject to study at SUNY Potsdam, given the campus setting is in the midst of ancient meta-sedimentary and meta-igneous rocks of the St. Lawrence Valley and Adirondack Mountains that have a billion-year-old story to tell.
