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 , GEO 209 and GEO 210 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).
