Associate of Science (AS) degree in Geology Pueblo Community College
Geology is the study of the Earth, its rocks, and how they change over time. Geology students explore the Earth's crust movement, the history of life on Earth, and past climates. It is vital for mineral and fossil fuel exploration, managing water resources, and solving environmental problems. This program introduces students to Geology, and it includes courses that are common to all four-year institutions in Colorado.
Geology degree holders' paths include resource management, mining, oil and gas exploration, and climate research. The Associate of Science (AS) degree in Geology prepares students to complete the second half of a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Biology at a four-year university.
