Spring Term 2013 Junior Seminar in Geology - 3040 - GEOL 580
Registration for this term is over. Changes or corrections to registration now by petition only. Students should contact their academic advisor.
The second week of classes has begun. Approval of the instructor is now required for registration.


Prerequisites/Notes: Declared geology major or minor and junior standing, or consent of instructor.

Catalog Description : The goal of the Junior Seminar is to engage geology majors in the scientific process. The course begins with consideration of the history of geology as a discipline. We discuss modes of thinking that are shared with other scientific disciplines as well as those unique to the geosciences, and we read seminal papers that shaped the development of the field. With the guidance of a faculty member, each student identifies a topic to investigate in depth. Students lead discussions, prepare literature reviews and give final presentations on their topics. The topic a student explores in the junior seminar may be (but is not required to be) the same as the one studied intensively in the Senior Capstone course (GEOL 620). For some students, the junior seminar topic may also be linked to a research project to be continued over the summer and/or through the student's senior year as an independent study or honors project.
