Wichita State University offers Geology Field Camp through GEOL 640 (Field Geology), a four week field-intensive experience in the Bighorn Basin of Wyoming and Montana. This capstone course is an outdoor laboratory for students to test geologic concepts, to learn how to interpret the rock and fossil record, visualize three dimensional geologic relationships, make and interpret geologic maps by various methods, and evaluate data used to make maps.
The prerequisites for this course are Mineralogy, Petrology, Structural Geology, Sedimentology, Stratigraphy, and a field methods course. Please see links below for more information regarding Wichita State's Field Camp. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact me.
