|What is the Earth Sciences program?
The Earth Sciences Program at San Antonio College provides quality instruction in the academic disciplines of geography and geology.
Geography can be best described as the study of the spatial patterns of physical and human features on the Earth’s surface (for example hazards, languages, agriculture, resources), and the processes that cause these patterns.
Geology is the science that focuses on the history of the Earth as recorded in rocks, and it seeks to describe and understand this history by analysis of geological features.
The department also offers ENVR 1302 as part of the course inventory in the Environmental Science Program at the college.
All of the geography (GEOG) and geology (GEOL) courses taught in this department are readily transferable to other colleges and to four-year universities in Texas and elsewhere in the United States.
