    By there were seven full-time and seven part-time faculty members and 13 students received their BS degrees that year. As the number of students and faculty increased so did the complexity of the curriculum. The first summer field course was offered in by Dr. Hussey in .   Earth Earth is a broad, in-depth course covering all aspects of field geology (structure, sedimentology, metamorphic and igneous petrology, geophysics, and surficial processes). The principal goal of the course is to train students to recognize distinct .

    but I haven't actually taken Physical Geology in about 4 years. A lot has been lost to the sands of time and the forces of DE and o-chem. So, my plan is to spend my free weeks this summer reading as many intro books as I can to make sure I have a very firm grounding when I start at University in the fall. Pitt does not offer its own field camp, so you get to pick one that best meets your interests and summer schedule. Here is a list of field camps. Not all of these field camps will count for the geology degree--in general avoid those that are fewer than 4 credits. For example, there are a number of 3-credit field camps to exotic places like Iceland, Nepal, and the Galapagos.

Geology Field Camp is the capstone experience in many undergraduate Geology programs, and it integrates and applies material learned in almost all of the undergraduate core classes in geoscience.

Field camp is usually taken in the summer following the Junior or Senior year, after completion of the required background classes in geology. Geology is a sub-field of environmental studies and earth sciences that analyses the history and physical structure of the earth, its constitutive materials and the processes shaping it.

Geology studies the chemical and physical properties of earth materials including minerals, natural gases and water. Geology degrees typically require students to undertake more fieldwork than geophysics or environmental geology degrees.

Usually this equates to a total of between two and three weeks in the field every year. Those on other geoscience courses are often able to participate in fieldwork but as an optional module.
