Geology

Overview

Our B.S. in Geoscience is designed for students interested in geology, paleontology, or environmental science. This major provides 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 (such as Death Valley and the Grand Canyon) for a firsthand learning experience. Whether you aspire to discover dinosaurs, teach high school geology, look for precious metals, or promote biblical stewardship of the environment, TMU is excited to equip you for astute scientific study.

TMU’s School of SMT&H is committed to producing students who exhibit academic excellence and who bear exemplary witness to Christ. Holding firm to the truth and inerrancy of Scripture, The Master’s University teaches all classes with the unshakeable foundation of the Bible. Students will graduate ready to go on to the next step in their careers, defend their faith as equipped and intellectual workers, and break new ground in their fields.

We hold Christ and Scripture as inerrant and above all else. Everything is interpreted through that lens without compromise. This means the bible is the foundation for science, not science for the bible.

Dr. Joe Francis, Dean of the School of Science
