CORE Courses in Geology

We offer four different lecture courses and two labs fulfilling the Basic Science CORE Requirements for undergraduate degrees at Kent State University.

Our labs are in high demand, making them fill up very quickly during registration. Our lab courses may be taken concurrently with their respective lectures, or in a subsequent semester. For example, taking How the Earth Works as a freshman allows you to take How the Earth Works Lab in any following semester before you graduate. Five of the six courses have 100% web sections available. 

Free Tutoring by experienced Geology graduate students and lab instructors begins week three of each semester.
