Why Choose Geology at PPCC?
If you are passionate about science, love the outdoors and want to understand the history of our planet, you will fit in well with PPCC’s Geology department. At PPCC we take learning into the field with geology outings and apply what we learn in the classroom.
What will I study?
Geologists study the earth. For 4.5 billion years Earth has been shaped by many natural forces like floods, earthquakes, volcanoes and continental drift to name a few. In geology students will learn:
- Basics of chemistry and physics
- Earth materials and features
- Mathematics and how it applies to geology
In Geology at PPCC our goal is for the student to completely prepare for transfer to a four-year university or college by providing them with a solid background in the first two years of Geology instruction.
Example Classes I Might Take
