Students in this course will explore the physical and geometric structures within the earth's crust and the ways in which these structures reflect natural history. Mapping techniques and methods of describing stress and strain in rocks will be covered, while emphasizing visualization of three-dimensional relationships. Students will learn practical analytical techniques and foundational field skill. This course is at the heart of field geology and will prepare students for a successful summer field camp experience.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
