GE 132 Exploring the Earth I: Origin and Systems (Fall: 4)

Corequisite: GE 133 Lab
Satisfies Natural Science Core Requirement
The Earth is a dynamic planet that our species is clearly changing. A great challenge of the 21st century is to maintain the Earth's ability to support its growing human population. This course discusses the origin and materials of the Earth and the processes by which it has evolved. It is a first course for Geological Sciences majors and also provides a background for departmental majors and minors. GE 132 is appropriate as a natural science core course for students interested in the Earth Sciences. The laboratory consists of in-class exercises, analysis of rocks, and a weekend field trip.
