Please remember, due to the nature of an online course, it is the student’s responsibility to have access to a functioning computer in order to complete the coursework.
Therese Fukuda, CCCOnline Physical Sciences Program Chair
Students must develop an introductory field trip that you would run for other students, friends, and/or family members who are interested in Historical Geology, visiting 3 separate locations. This is not a virtual trip, but must be made in person.
Please view Notes from the Department Chair and Field Trip/Field Work to see if there are additional requirements for this course.
This online course has the same prerequisite requirements as the on-campus course. Please check your home college catalog or schedule for specific prerequisite information.
