Field Activities

While the laboratory and classroom are key to a KU Geology education, fieldwork remains integral. Undergraduates take required field courses and work out of KU Geology’s permanent field camp in Colorado. Students at all levels can also choose between numerous other field experiences. Most recently these have included trips to Spain, Puerto Rico, Iceland, and throughout the United States. New trips are being added all the time.
