Geoscientists try to understand how Earth’s many systems work so they can solve problems related to resource use. As a geoscience student at CSC you will get involved with issues of water and energy, geological hazards and land use. You will learn to apply your skills for observation and working with people, your love of the outdoors and your knack for understanding complex relationships. Your hard work will pay off when you become a critical resource for your community.
CSC’s Eleanor Barbour Cook Museum of Geology is a center for learning about the Earth in a fun and informal way. Its beautiful displays of rocks, minerals and fossils are tangible examples of Earth system interaction. The museum’s trackway cast from Toadstool Park is one of the largest trace fossils on exhibit anywhere in the world.
