The Master’s University is continuing to grow their range of scientific study and is now offering its first ever physical science major: Geoscience! Our new geoscience major is designed for students with interests in geology, paleontology, or environmental science. This major will provide students with the training they need to understand the earth’s past and present as told through its rocks, minerals, fossils, landforms, and processes. There will be opportunities to explore breathtaking geological sites of the southwest for a first-hand learning experience. Whether you aspire to discover dinosaurs, teach high school geology, look for precious metals, or promote biblical stewardship of the environment, the university is excited to equip you for astute scientific study.
