Students! Come Join us for an extraordinary introductory science experience in the Sierra Nevada this summer!

Join our intro-level “expedition” science course, “Volcanoes of the Eastern Sierra Nevada“, taught jointly through the IU Department of Geological Sciences and Collins Living-Learning Center.

The class offers a hands-on, inquiry-oriented introduction to the geological and ecological setting of one of the most beautiful and environmentally diverse areas of the western U.S. It’s open to all IU students – no prerequisites! Fulfills N&M Gen Ed science requirement and available for Honors credit.

The course includes 1-cr seminar-style class during the second half of spring semester, followed by a 2-week field trip to the Sierras, May 9 – 23.  Scholarships are available for Collins residents and prospective Geological or Environmental Sciences majors.

For more information, see http://www.indiana.edu/~sierra/where you’ll find course information, some great photos from last year’s field course and on-line application information.
