We offer more than 50 different courses in each of our undergraduate and graduate programs. Our courses cover topics ranging from groundwater flow to volcanology, earthquake seismology, plate tectonics, geochemistry and paleontology. Our faculty consistently receives some of the highest possible evaluations from the undergraduate non-majors and geology majors who take our classes. We strive to bring the most cutting-edge science and pedagogy to the classroom and involve students in field trips and laboratory research as often as possible.
