Geology students study the history of Earth, the ongoing processes that shape the Earth, and how humans and Earth interact.  Geology is a very eclectic subject that exposes students to the aspects of the nature of scientific inquiry, chemistry, biology, physics, and atmospheric science. 

Our courses can fulfill general education lab-science requirements and transfer to UA, ASU, and NAU, and are an excellent way to explore the world around you!
