Geology Field Camp

Geology field camp is an intensive, off-campus summer course. It’s designed to be a capstone experience for undergraduate geology majors at UA Little Rock. Many alumni remember the field camp as the highlight of their undergraduate career. While the curriculum varies among different camps, the common thread is typically field description, identification, and mapping of sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks. Most camps operate on a 3- to 6-week schedule. Individual and/or group projects commonly range from a day to a week. Different field camps are held in locations throughout the U.S. and around the world, but many operate in the Rocky Mountains of the western U.S.

We have developed a 3-week, 3-credit summer field camp. It’s usually in July in the Needle Mountains near Durango, Colorado. If you would like to learn more, contact Dr. Josh Spinler.
