There are multiple divisions within this SBU, such as North American Exploration and Development, South American Exploration and Development, and other divisions.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
