GEOL 0211 - Geology in the Field: Selected Locations

Credits: 3

This course will use lectures, multimedia, and readings to introduce students to the geology of a specific geographic region (e.g. the American Southwest, New England, Iceland) and will also include a 10-14 day field trip to the region to examine its geological and related environmental and cultural features firsthand. Field trips will generally be scheduled in late May, and will involve additional travel costs. The class will meet for one 75-minute period per week during the semester, with the field trip constituting the remainder of class time. This course may be repeated for credit provided that the focus is on a different region.

Prerequisites: GEOL 0101 GEOL 0102 , or GEOL 0106 . And permission of instructor.
