To understand the Earth you need to study its minerals, rocks, soils, and landscapes in many different settings. You have to study it at all scales too, from vast landscapes to microscopic soil particles. You have to interact with it through hands-on experiences in labs and on field trips. That is exactly what you get in the geology program at Northland. The faculty love getting out in the field with students, and when they can’t go out, they bring the field into the classroom through maps, rock samples, slides, and stories.
