Course Selection Guidelines: None of the 100-level courses in Geology have prerequisites, but only GEO 110 , GEO 112 , GEO 117 , and GEO 120  serve as entry points into upper level courses. Preference for GEO 110 , GEO 112 , GEO 117 , and GEO 120  is given to first-year students and sophomores.  GEO 120  should be taken as soon as possible. Students should take GEO 201 , GEO 202 , GEO 203 , GEO 205  , GEO 206 , GEO 207 , GEO 208 , and GEO 209  after taking an introductory course, ideally in the second year. Students should have completed CHM 101  before taking GEO 220 ; GEO 220  is a prerequisite for GEO 320 . All Geology majors are required to take GEO 405  in the senior year. All Geology majors are required to complete a senior thesis, which may be either 1 term (GEO 498 ) or 2-3 terms (GEO 495  , GEO 496  , & GEO 497 ); GEO 496  and GEO 498  satisfy the senior writing requirement (WS).
