|The Earth Sciences program at Carleton offers you the opportunity to study the Earth’s systems, incorporating knowledge from other sciences including physics, biology and chemistry. You will learn about processes (such as evolution, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, plate tectonics and mountain building, formation of hydrocarbon reservoirs and mineral deposits) influential in the Earth’s geologic past that establish our present and future global development. The program offers the opportunity to participate in hands-on field courses that can take you to sites throughout Ontario, across Canada and around the world.
You may combine your studies in earth sciences with biology, chemistry, physical geography or geography. The combined program in geography can be completed with a formal concentration in Terrain Sciences. Combined Honours programs enable you to take an equal number of courses in each subject.
