What's It All About?
If you have ever questioned why landscapes differ, why earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur, why the mountains and oceans exist, or why the dinosaurs became extinct, then you have already been introduced to geology. The study of geology is an expression of our curiosity of the world around us. The process of finding the answers to these questions is complex and fascinating; it is what geology is all about! Find out if geology is for you.
Geology: not just for rockhounds!
You can't just sit in a classroom and learn geology. You will get outside: on mountains, glaciers, lakes, and in the oceans, to do your work. Being out-of-doors with your landscape teaches you how to observe and describe what you see by:
- collecting data.
- learning how to interpret and visually present data.
- communicating your conclusions to those around you.
