GEOL 101 - INTRODUCTION TO GEOLOGY
This course provides an introduction to the geological sciences, including an historical background. The course begins with the underlying geologic principles and the exploration of Plate Tectonics, which is used as a framework for the rest of the course. Subsequent topics include: the formation of the major rock-forming minerals, and common igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks; the major geophysical processes and the formation of resultant features (volcanoes, earthquakes, mountain belts, ocean basins, and structural geologic features); and the physical and biological history of the planet. GEOL 101 can be used to fulfill requirements for Environmental Studies majors and the General Education 100-level science requirement for non-science majors. Environmental Science and Integrated Science Studies majors must take GEOL 105 Fundamentals of Geology (lec/lab) instead (which is also recommended for those seeking teacher certification in earth science).
