Our Geology program is situated in the northern edge of the Michigan Basin in the eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The classic Pre-Cambrian exposures of the Canadian Shield are immediately to our north. This affords us the unique opportunity of exploring geology that is only found in our area and is not available elsewhere. Many of our courses have outdoor field trips to observe and work with these unique geologic features.
Our program also engages students in extended field trips in which students actively experience hands-on work with other unique geologic environments in North America . Travel to these exciting geological provinces is a part of every student's sophomore and senior year. Students routinely work with the world-class geology of the Black Hills and also visit such places as Death Valley and southern Appalacians.
Geology Club is actively involved in outdoor activities and informal field trips. These trips are student led and are fun, educational, profitable because the Club collects minerals and rocks for resale, and oh by the way, did we mention FUN?!!
