Geology is the study of Earth using scientific methodology and observation to understand the processes and phenomena that shape the planet over time. It is an interdisciplinary approach that uses the fundamental concepts of biology, chemistry, and physics to investigate landforms and the internal processes of Earth.

Although it is not required, students are also encouraged to take two semesters of physics that is typically required for 4-year degree in geology.
