LSC-North Harris Geology Department
Geology students gain a greater appreciation of the Earth through the study of the physical forces that shape the Earth (Physical Geology-GEOL1403), the history of the Earth through the study of environments, the development of life, and the succession of geological events (Historical Geology-GEOL1404), and the influence of geologic processes on man and the effects of human activity on the Earth (Environmental Geology-GEOL1405). The Geology of Texas (GEOL2307) includes the topography, physiography, structure, geologic history, and economic geology of our state. Participation in optional field trips is encouraged.
These courses are offered as both day and evening classes and are acceptable for associate degree programs and are transferable to four-year institutions to fulfill science requirements.
