Field study gives Shocker students practical experience
Geology students can gain hands-on expereince before graduation.
Eighteen undergraduates from the Geology Department spent three weeks in Wyoming as
part of Geology Field Camp, an intensive, four-week capstone course in the Bighorn
Basin and Yellowstone region.
Students had the opportunity to combine classroom lessons with field experience in
sedimentology, mineralogy and structural geology. They also learned how to map and
interpret rocks, which involved critical thinking and communication skills.
