Field Camp: Eastern Washington University runs a four-week geology field camp for 10 quarter credits (6 semester credits) in southwestern Montana. Geology field camp is a capstone course for an undergraduate degree in geology and a prerequisite for most graduate programs in geology. Students describe rock units and make geologic maps in a rugged landscape dominated by the Tobacco Root, Pioneer, and Beaverhead Mountains. Field instruction includes detailed description of rock units, GPS skills, and geologic mapping using topographic maps and air photos. Students undertake a variety of group and individual exercises.
