DescriptionGeology is the study of the Earth, its origin, structure, and composition. Rocks are a key component of our landscape. They give us clues as to how and when it formed, and the materials it contains. You will learn about minerals, how they form and grow, and under what conditions this happens. We explore how minerals come together and form rocks, and examine how looking at a rock tells you something about the environment in which it formed. We will talk about volcanoes, landslides, earthquakes, glaciers, deserts, and rivers - all of which shape the surface of the planet.

At the University of New Brunswick Saint John, we teach first-year courses in the geology and geo-engineering programs. Some second year courses are also available with an emphasis on paleontology and the environment, of particular interest to biology students.
