What will I learn?
Geology 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. This is important for mineral and fossil fuel exploration, managing water resources, and solving environmental problems. This program introduces you to geology and includes courses that are common to all four-year institutions in Colorado. The AS degree in Geology prepares you to complete the second half of a bachelor’s degree in Biology at a four-year university.
