Geology / 177

GEOG 260 C  Economic Geography

3 Units

GEOG 298 C  Geography Seminar

.5 to 12 Units

Prerequisite: May be required. Corequisite: May be required. Advisory: May be required. Term hours: 0–216 lecture and/or 0–756 laboratory. This is a lecture/ discussion type course developed on a particular limited problem or topic of interest to students. It is designed for able students who wish to increase their knowledge of a particular topic concerning which no other regular class is offered. A paper or group activity may be requested. Credit may range from .5 units to 12 units. Consult class schedule for the offerings a particular semester. Fees may be required — Payable at Registration. May be taken for credit 1–4 times. Pass/No Pass or Pass/No Pass/Letter Grade Option or Standard Letter Grade. (UC Credit Limitation/CSU)

GEOG 299 C  Geography Independent Study

1 Unit

Prerequisite: Approved Independent Study Learning Contract. May be taken for credit 3 times. Varying hours of scheduled conferences per week according to instructor. Independent study is for able students who wish to extend their knowledge of a particular area through individual research and study. It is thought the topics might develop out of a curiosity stimulated in a regular class. The student would then contact the supervising instructor to develop a contract for his/her particular interest so that they could learn more regarding their specific topic.

PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES (PLOs)

The courses taught by this department contribute to the General Education and Basic Skills Program Learning Outcomes. Please refer to General Education and Basic Skills Program Learning Outcomes.

GEOLOGY TRANSFER PROGRAMS

Students should consult a counselor or www.assist.org for lower division major requirements for most California public universities. (See the Standard Definitions section of the catalog for a description of ASSIST.) Students transferring to an independent college/university should consult the catalog of the individual school and a counselor for lower division major requirements.

Term hours: 48–54 lecture. This course is a survey of the composition and structure of the earth, integrating the processes and forces that operate underneath and upon the earth’s surface. Duplicate credit not granted for GEOL 100HC or GEOL 102 C. (UC/‌CSU, AA GE, CSU GE, IGETC) Term hours: 48–54 lecture. This course is an enhanced introduction to the concepts and theories of geology. This course is a survey of the composition and structure of the earth, integrating the processes and forces that operate underneath and upon the earth’s surface. Visits to local natural museums and geological field trips may be arranged. Duplicate credit not granted for GEOL 100 C or GEOL 102 C. (UC/‌CSU, AA GE, CSU GE, IGETC)

GEOL 101 C  Physical Geology Laboratory

1 Unit

Prerequisite: Completion of, or concurrent enrollment in, GEOL 100 C. Term hours: 80–90 lecture. This course includes the identification of minerals and rocks; understanding of topographic maps, aerial photographs and other imagery from remote sensing; interpretation of rocks, structures, and geologic processes as revealed on maps, air photos, and satellite imagery and their relationship to plate tectonics. Not open to students with credit in GEOL 102 C. (UC/‌CSU, AA GE, CSU GE, IGETC)

GEOL 103 C  Historical Geology

4 Units

GEOL 115 C  Physical Geology Field Lab

1 Unit

Term hours: 48–54 lecture and 48–54 laboratory. This course is an introduction to the scientific method of exploring planetary materials and structures in understanding the origin and development of the earth and its organisms through time. Laboratory involves examining and classifying rock and fossil specimens, analyses of rock and fossil records found on and in the earth, and application of rock and fossil interpretations to historical geology. (UC/‌CSU, AA GE, CSU GE, IGETC) Term hours: 48–54 lecture and 48–54 laboratory. This class is designed for the prospective school teacher. This multidisciplinary course will explore the fields of geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy. Topics include solar system, mineral/rock formation, star/galaxy, atmosphere, volcanoes, and earthquakes. (CSU, AA GE, CSU GE) Term hours: 48–54 lecture. This course includes field and laboratory study of minerals, rock, and fossil identification; structural and geo­morphic features; geologic history; and geologic hazards of selected regions in Southern California. Not open to students with credit in GEOL 101 C or GEOL 102 C. (UC Credit Limitation/CSU, AA GE, CSU GE, IGETC)

GEOL 120 C  Geology of California

3 Units

Term hours: 48–54 lecture. This course is designed to acquaint the student with the physical and historical geology of the natural provinces of California. The mineral deposits, stratigraphic and rock units, tectonic structures, fossils and geomorphology within each province will be examined. (UC/‌CSU, AA GE, CSU GE, IGETC)

Courses

Same as ECON 260 C. Term hours: 48–54 lecture. This course is an investigation and interpretation of the world’s economic organization, its natural resources, raw materials, crops and crop production, manufacturing and service industries, new trends in producing and the changing centers of production and consumption. (UC/‌CSU, CSU GE, IGETC)
