We think you'll find this course very enjoyable. Physical Geology is designed to give you an overview of our planet and how it functions. While this is a science course, don't be scared into thinking that we'll be doing lots of calculus or chemistry or physics. It's not like that. Think of this course as an advanced Outward Bound or NOLS course — if you like outdoor activities, such as hiking, skiing, kayaking, or just being in the outdoors, then you will appreciate how this course helps you understand in more depth the environment you so like to play in.

  To get started, just select from the list of links in the left column on this page. It's recommended that you start with the syllabus to see the recommended order in which you should approach the course.

Keep in mind that this is a content-driven course. That is, reading and memorization are the order of the day, rather than group discussions commonly found in upper level and graduate courses.
