Mineralogy is an upper division Geology course designed for majors in Geology (GLY; GLY-E), and Adolescence Education--Earth Science (AES). Students enrolled in this course will be exposed to basic principles in the study of solid state materials of Earth's crust. The topics covered are listed in the course syllabus (see below), but special effort is made to emphasize those aspects of mineralogy which directly apply to the interpretation of rocks and Earth's history.
