Geology of Colorado


Program and Scholarship Application Due: February 15, 2019!

Course Sections Available: GE 204E (3 credit lecture)/GE 205E (1 credit lab)

Colorado is an ideal location to study field geology. The state’s geological formations and landforms, eastern plains, rugged mountains, volcanic areas of the southwest, and western deserts provide a diversity of environments unsurpassed by any other region in the world. Colorado has more earth scientists per capita than anywhere on the planet, which mean that the geology, landforms, hydrology, and soils of the state have been thoroughly studied and explored, resulting in a wealth of high-quality, Colorado-specific resources for students of the earth sciences. Students in this course will use first-hand observation as the basis for analysis and discussion of the connections between the billion-year geologic history of Colorado and how humans have occupied the landscapes of the state.
