Western Washington University offers a Masters program in Geology that aims to prepare students for professional employment in geoscience careers in the Pacific Northwest and beyond or for continuing graduate studies at the doctoral level. We specialize in structure/tectonics, petrology, volcanology, geomorphology, geophysics, hydrogeology and environmental/engineering geology, geothermal energy, sedimentology, planetary geology, and geoscience education.
The Bachelor of Science degree program in Industrial Technology-Vehicle Design prepares graduates for design, product development and manufacturing positions in the automotive, marine, aerospace, composites, and alternative fuel industry. The program uses vehicle research, design and development projects to educate students.
The BS in Behavioral Neuroscience integrates across elements of biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics and psychology, to study how nervous system structure and function produces normal and abnormal behavior. For example, Behavioral Neuroscience majors study the biological basis of normal learning and memory as well as psychiatric illnesses such as depression, schizophrenia, and drug abuse.
