Program Description


HFC offers one course in Geology (GEOL-131). 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 Science Associate in Science degree. This program gives students the option to complete science courses that align with their interests, strengths, or personal goals.

Requirements are subject to change. The information represented here is effective starting Fall 2017 and applies to the current catalog year. If you were admitted prior to this year, please check your requirements under the My Progress section of HFC Self Service.
