Field Opportunities

Geology is a field-oriented profession, thus many of our courses require field trips to locations of significant geologic importance, or are actually taught in the field. Examples of trips include studies of the structural geology and stratigraphy of Pennsylvania and Virginia, the mineralogy and petrology of North Carolina, as well as landslides, caves, arches and glacial features of Kentucky. Summer field courses include trips to places like Colorado, Utah and Belize.
