Geology classes at TMCC support degree programs in the physical sciences, and help fill the general education requirements for degree completion.

Your associate degree in geoscience provides the first two years towards a Bachelor’s Degree in Geology at most major universities. In addition, geology classes provide support for the Geothermal Technician program.

Geology classes are limited to 28 students, and the laboratory courses are taught by the same instructor as in the lecture section so that students receive one-on-one attention from the instructor. In addition, most geology classes include a field trip to look at local Nevada geology.
