Geology is the study of the origin and evolution of the earth, utilizing the principles of mathematics, chemistry, physics and biology. The concept of geologic time and the principles of uniformitarianism help geologists to understand the processes that shape the earth and its environments. Geologists study rocks, minerals and fossils in an effort to draw conclusions about both the earth's observable surface processes that meet the eye, and the earth's interior.
The Science program provides a broad study in the fields of biological and physical sciences in preparation for transfer to a four-year program and continuation of studies in upper division science courses. Areas of study include Anthropology, Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, Geography, Geology and Physics.
