Geology Classes

Geology is a broad scientific discipline that studies all aspects of the planet: its history, its composition and internal structure, and its surface features. Geologists seek answers to many basic questions about our world:

  • What material is the planet composed of?
  • Why are the continents shaped the way they are?
  • How did the Himalaya and Alps rise to their great heights?
  • Why are volcanoes located where they are?
  • Why are some regions devastated by earthquakes but others are not?
  • How did Earth's environment change and evolve over billions of years?

Geologists can find work in a wide range of industries and scientific fields, and, in effect, serve as Earth's historians.
