Geology classes are designed for students interested in the Earth’s natural features and history. Geology is a great place to start for students thinking of exploring a career in Geology or just looking to understand their planet better. Courses include topics such as earthquakes, volcanoes, minerals, rocks, fossils, rivers, glaciers, landslides, weathering, plate tectonics, climate change, evolution and extinction, and the Pacific Northwest. After taking a Geology class many students claim that they look at the Earth in a different way.

Most classes are designed for non science majors and do not have any course specific prerequisite. The classes are designed to engage the student in scientific inquiry and stress interactive learning. The class credits can be used to meet general education requirements for transfer degrees.
