GPS Minor Requirements
The minors in the GPS Division are intended for non-GPS undergraduates to supplement a major degree with knowledge of earth and planetary science. The requirements for the minor are as follows:
- Ge 11a
- Select two of the following courses: Ge 11b, Ge 11c, Ge 11d
- 27 units of 100-level or higher GPS courses, excluding Ge 109
If the courses selected for requirement (3) above are sufficiently focused in one of the GPS tracks, students may opt to include a track on their transcript (e.g. Minor in GPS with a focused track). Minor tracks are possible in Geobiology, Geochemistry, Geology, Geophysics, and Planetary Sciences. The courses selected for (3) must be approved by the appropriate option representative in the division. Any 27 units that satisfy (3) may be used to satisfy the GPS minor, regardless of focus.
