What Will I LearnGeology is the study of the Earth, its rocks, and the ways that they change over time. Geology students explore the movement of the Earth’s crust, the history of life on Earth, and past climates. It is important for mineral and fossil fuel exploration, managing water resources, and solving environmental problems. This program introduces students to Geology and it includes courses that are common to all four-year institutions in Colorado.
