Geological Sciences Undergraduate Courses & Resources
Alumni often describe field geology as the most enjoyable and memorable part of their undergraduate experience. The summer field course is the Geological Sciences capstone course where students put their field mapping techniques to use. Recent field course participants spent part of the summer at Yellowstone Bighorn Research Association facility in Red Lodge, Montana.
The course lasts five weeks and typically is taken immediately after a student's junior or senior year. The course begins with several weeks of fieldwork in Ohio and the Appalachian Mountains, followed by several weeks in Montana, Wyoming and the Northeastern United States.
