Undergraduate Programs


Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Geology

At UTSA, you can earn either the B.S. or B.A. in Geology. The B.S. is for those who intend to become professional geologists or plan to attend graduate school in geosciences and the B.A. is for those looking to receive a quality preparatory education in the discipline. A degree in Geology will prepare you for careers in petroleum, mining, water resources, environmental management, governmental agencies, engineering geology, geochemistry, geophysics, and natural resources.

For students with specific interest in addressing water resource or climate issues, we also offer two areas of concentration within the geology degree (B.S. or B.A.):

  1. Hydrology
  2. Earth System and Climate

We also offer an undergraduate Certificate in Geographic Information System (GIS) program. Students from any degree program at UTSA can apply for this Certificate and courses taken for this Certificate program can be applied to any degree program with an approval of Undergraduate Advisor of Record for the degree program.

Bachelor of Science Degree in Multidisciplinary Studies: Geoinformatics Track

The Geological Sciences department also plays a critical role in the Geoinformatics track of the Multidisciplinary Studies B.S. degree offered through the University College.
