WCJC offers the student classes in both physical and historical geology. Completion of a lecture class in geology earns the student 3 credit hours of science. Laboratory classes in geology are separate, whereby, upon completion, the student earns 1 credit hour. These satisfy the transfer science block requirements for most universities. Since the laboratories are separate 1-hour classes from the 3-hour lecture classes, students are able to fulfill their science requirements for a great variety of 4-year degree programs that may require 6, 7, or 8 hours of science credit. This allows the student at WCJC to complete only the needed lecture and laboratory hours for their particular degree program.

The fulltime and part-time geology faculty of WCJC has a rich and varied background in both professional field geology experience and years of teaching expertise. Fully equipped and modern laboratory facilities allow the student to experience ãhands onä geology with the investigation of mineral and rock specimens, a great variety of fossils, and geologic maps.
