Why study Geology? Check out this video from the American Geological Institute.
Welcome to GCC's Geology Program! We are research, industry, and academic geologists dedicated to community education. We offer lower division (Freshman/Sophomore) courses in Geology to serve the needs of:
Our courses are taught, in-person, by experienced geologists with immense collections of minerals, rocks, fossils, and other demonstration materials, and use state of the art instructional technologies. Although we may pursue other geologic research, our first priority is the education of our students. We are routinely available outside of class time.
We also take advantage of Arizona's spectacular geologic setting to provide the opportunity for real-time field observation of many geological features. Check out these award-winning MCCTV videos documenting just a few of our many Field Courses and Extra Credit Field Trips.
In addition to the success of our alumni in the real world, student achievement data show that our traditional approach to geology education is more successful and, in some cases, more valuable than the popular distance learning or 'on-line" courses. Check out this graph and these testimonials from prospective employers.
Check us out- we look forward to helping you appreciate geology!
