Field Camp Overview
Geological mapping and structure
The USF Geology Department offers summer field school during Summer Term C for undergraduate students. The course is organized as 4 field sessions (please see links at right). Each field session lasts two weeks. The sessions are designed to introduce methods in field geology and geological research across a range of disciplines. Each session involves doing geology outside in a research environment with faculty who specialize in the area. Each session provides an exciting opportunity for students to learn crucial skills needed by every geologist. This year (2013) the field camp sessions include: Hydrogeology (5/13-5/24), Geologic Mapping (5/27-6/7), Field Geophysics (6/10-6/21), and Coastal Geology (6/24-7/5). Each field session counts for 2 credit hours. While everyone is encouraged to do all four sessions, students are allowed to register for one, two, three, or four sessions. It is important to realize that each session will be very time-consuming, and it will not be possible to be registered, concurrently, in other Summer Term C courses. See below for details!
Please Note: USF Geology majors are guaranteed a spot in this course if they sign-up before March 1. After that date, sessions will fill on a first-come, first-serve basis. Enrollment is limited. Do not delay! To enroll, follow the steps given in the Enrollment and Fees link at the right.
