Geology (GEOL)

The study of Geology is the application of biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics to the study of the earth. Students learn to observe and interpret the world around them and then are able to acquire and use scientific knowledge to make decisions regarding issues such as resource use, natural disaster policy, and hazardous waste disposal.

At Green River College you may begin your studies by taking courses that prepare you to be "major ready" and transfer to a university. While you are taking your major prerequisites within your transfer degree, you can focus your distribution choices and elective credits toward meeting your educational goals and area of interest.

All transferability of classes to four-year institutions is at the discretion of the receiving institution. Students should contact an advisor at the college to which they intend to transfer. Please visit the College Transfer Center for more information.
