The minor in Paleontology is designed for students interested in the history of life on Earth. Entry and core courses will provide students with insight into the major features of the fossil record, the methods used in historical sciences, and the theoretical issues dealt with by paleontologists. The advanced courses are meant to satisfy more specific interests.

LSA's innovative and flexible majors provide an interesting path for students to follow on their way to an LSA degree. From our field camp at Camp Davis in Wyoming, to lab work on campus, Michigan students have an opportunity to explore the geological sciences in exciting ways.
