Data Center Description
The geology program at Hamilton combines an innovative curriculum, an emphasis on field work and a commitment to student-faculty research. Concentrators must complete eight required courses in geology, one elective and a two-semester senior project or thesis. Hamilton also offers a concentration in geoarchaeology, which combines a background in the geosciences with preparation in archaeology.
Students may minor in geology by taking one introductory course and four other courses in the department at the 200 level or higher. Alternatively, students may minor in environmental studies and choose from a wide variety of courses in many disciplines, including many in geology.
High school preparation for studies in the geosciences should include courses in the sciences as well as advanced courses in English composition.
