Area of Study

HFC offers one course in Geology (GEOL-131: Physical Geology). It is ideal for the student with little or no prior scientific or mathematical experience who wishes to explore geology or science in general, as well as for students preparing to be secondary school science teachers. It also provides a good introductory survey for students planning advanced study of geology.

Students interested in majoring in geology at a four-year school should consult the catalog of the school to which they wish to transfer for assistance in planning a course of study. Students interested in majoring in general science should consider completing the General Science Studies Associate in Science degree. This program gives students the option to select a track, such as Biology or Chemistry, to align with their interests, strengths, or personal goals.
