Geology, Geography and Environmental Studies at Calvin

A diverse department

The Geology, Geography, and Environmental Studies Department at Calvin College offers more than just a great learning experience - it guarantees students rich interaction with active professors, deep involvement in various department projects, and opportunities to just have fun with others who wish to learn and apply their knowledge to better God's Earth, in both the natural and social sciences.

Faculty with experience

Our faculty are experts in their respective fields and have demonstrated excellence in the classroom and through research publication. We work alongside our students to see their success and offer not only expertise in our fields of study, but knowledge and experience as students look forward to employment or graduate school.

Getting off-campusaagtripmtns

The department has a special emphasis on taking the learning experience beyond the bounds of the classroom. From field trips all around the state to interims in Hawaii, Ethiopia, and the Netherlands, the geology, geography and environmental studies department at Calvin values making the learning process more than just a reading or lecture.
