    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a tough as nails class! But I learned a lot of very helpful information that is (required of a GEOS degree) in other later classes. IF YOU ARE NOT A GEOS MAJOR- DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS!

    Course highlights:

    Like I said above, this class in hard! But you will learn a lot of important things that will help you in later classes and out in the field. You will know everything you need to properly identify rocks!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    READ THE BOOK! Manton’s lectures are long and detailed and sometimes a little overwhelming. Also keep the small blue book that is required for the class!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Not only is it a part of the degree and a required pre- req for other course later on, but it is a helpful course to take. It is extremely hard and there is a LOT of course work. But over all, this class will leave you with a better under standing of the basic principle of Geosciences.

    Course highlights:

    You will learn everything you every wanted to know about rocks and Minerals!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    The books are going to be your best friend’s! Another book that was a huge help in this course was the " Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Rocks and Minerals". It helped in addition to the required small blue book need. Also make sure to ask questions. The Professor may seem intimating, but he really likes when students ask for help during the labs.
