Physical Geology for Science and Engineering Majors, GEOL1114

Students learn to observe and interpret geologic materials and processes as geoscientists through active learning exercises

Exploring Planetary Worlds GEOL 3043

Natural Sciences General Education Course for both geoscientists and non-majors. Students learn about a range of solid bodies in our Solar System, then design a planetary science mission to investigate one of these bodies in more detail.

Geowriting, GEOL 3333

Geoscience students develop their technical writing and communication skills through a semester-long research project that culminates in a journal-style manuscript and conference-style poster and talk

Principles of Geochemistry, GEOL 4223/5223

Students apply thermodynamics and kinetics to solve geological problems (taught in the spring semester of even-numbered years)

Gender and Identity in STEM, WGS 3393

This course examines the role of gender and other forms of identity, including race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation, on contemporary STEM students and professionals through recent scholarship focused on gender and identity and their effects on skill, self-efficacy, and academic/professional outcomes in STEM disciplines. We explore the intersection and effects of cultural expectations associated with gender, race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation on professional identity and student engagement in STEM fields.
