The Geosciences Department supports the college-wide Core Learning Outcomes, in additional to promoting the following program specific outcomes:
- Apply quantitative analysis to solve problems: by solving problems through the use of algebra, analyzing and predicting outcomes from graphical data, and converting between scientific units.
- Apply the scientific method: by forming hypothesis based upon observations, design and implement simple experiments, and draw reasonable conclusions.
- Critically evaluate the science related content: by interpreting data from graphs and tables.
- Effectively communicate scientific processes: by writing laboratory reports that includes data in tabular and graphical format, and summarizing results to explain the phenomena studied.
