Earth and Space Sciences Summer Field Course

Make the great outdoors part of your classroom this summer!

Since 2011, the Department of Earth and Space Sciences has offered a 4-week summer course where students learn about astronomy, geology and meteorology by seeing it up close and personal.  Past trips have taken our students to Yellowstone National Park, the Rocky Mountains of New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming, Mt. St. Helens in Washington State, and other amazing parts of the U.S.  As part of this field course, students can earn course credit in...
  • ASTR1105  Descriptive Astronomy
  • GEOL1112/1112L Understanding the Weather lecture and laboratory
  • GEOL1121/1121L Physical Geology lecture and laboratory
  • GEOL3225 Geosciences Field Trip
  • GEOL5555 Special Topics
Seats on this field trip course are limited each year and available to students on a first-come/first-served basis.  For more information on this summer's trip, including field trip dates and fees, contact Dr. Clint Barineau in the Department of Earth and Space Sciences.  Check out student produced videos from past summer trips here...
