Free Tutoring for all Geology CORE Courses


Experienced Geology graduate students and lab instructors answer your questions, beginning week three of each semester, in room 223 MCG, 11:00 am - 2:00 pm, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  No appointment necessary. 

CORE Courses in Geology

 

We offer four different lecture courses and two labs fulfilling the Basic Science CORE Requirements for undergraduate degrees at Kent State University.

Our labs are in high demand, making them fill up very quickly during registration. Our lab courses may be taken concurrently with their respective lectures, or in a subsequent semester. For example, taking How the Earth Works as a freshman allows you to take How the Earth Works Lab in any following semester before you graduate.

Free Tutoring by experienced Geology graduate students and lab instructors begins week three of each semester.
