Earth Science at College of the Redwoods

The Earth Science program at College of the Redwoods includes courses in geology, geography, meteorology, and oceanography. Most of these courses fulfill requirements within College of the Redwood's general education curriculum and fulfill physical science general education requirements at state and regional universities. The college also offers an Associate of Science Degree in Geology that is designed to meet the transfer requirements of geology programs at California state universities (CSUs). The requirements for this degree are available through the link on the right side of this page.

Many of the earth sciences courses also fulfill requirements within the AA - Science and AA - Science Exploration degrees. Students are encourage to review the courses and science-related degree options listed in the sidebar links.

This page and the geology and geography pages provided through the tabs above were constructed by David Bazard, Information about Dave's professional activities can be found at his Web page: Dave Bazard. Dave's email address and the email address of other earth science faculty are provided below.

    Earth Science Major Transfer Preparation

    The following link is a brochure that describes the appropriate course sequences to successfully prepare and transfer to a university as a science major. Students are encouraged to review this information with a science faculty member, advisor, and/or counselor to assure a successful and efficient transfer to the university level. Note that following course numbering change related to the mathematics requirements described in this brochure: Math 106 (Elementary Algebra) has been renumbered as Math 380.
