EASC Courses

IAI Physical Sciences

EASC 101: Introduction to Geology
Study of the origin and types of earth materials and the processes at work in our physical environment. Topics include earthquakes, erosion, mountain building, minerals, rocks, volcanoes, and glaciers. A two-hour lab each week will emphasize lecture material. Field trip required. 4 HRS
IAI GEC Code - P1 907L

IAI Physical Sciences

EASC 102: Historical Geology
Focuses on the history of the Earth since its formation. Includes analysis of sedimentary rock systems, evolution and life history, plate tectonic changes through time and age determination methods. Emphasizes the origin and evolution of life, illustrating changing faunas and floras through time; the effects of an evolving atmosphere, changing climate and continental drift. 4 HRS
IAI GEC Code - P1 907L

IAI Physical Sciences

EASC 111: Environment Earth
This is a course for non-science majors who desire a physical science understanding of environmental concerns. Topics may include: ground water, air quality, land management, nuclear energy, and solid waste disposal. An optional lab (EASC 122) will apply physical science principles to lecture material. 3 HRS
IAI GEC Code - P1 905

IAI Physical Sciences

EASC 121: Introduction to Earth Science
This is an introductory physical science class that surveys the fields of geology, oceanography, atmospheric science and astronomy.
