Geology in practice
Collections and Equipment
The Geology Department has excellent facilities and tools for students and faculty. Take a look at some of what the department has to offer.
Beloit’s Geology Department places an emphasis on field work as part of the geology curriculum. Nearly all of our courses include a local field component and many include longer field trips, such as a weekend trip to explore the glacial landscapes of Wisconsin, a four-day Fall Break trip to explore the mineralogy and petrology of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and trips throughout the Midwestern United States focusing on Paleozoic paleontology and stratigraphy.
