Field of study

Study the earth by taking courses in geology that focus on physical geology, historical geology, geological processes, oceanography and more. Students learn through a combination of lecture, hands-on lab experiences, and field trips.

Geology courses are offered as part of the requirements of the Associate of Science degree, or may be taken as required or elective courses to complete other degrees. 

Students interested in pursuing a degree at ASU, NAU or UA should meet with geology faculty to plan their course of study using transfer information.
