The study of geosciences at Trinity University is built upon the philosophy that the students at the undergraduate level must receive a broad-based education emphasizing the fundamental principles of the discipline, enhanced whenever possible with the benefits of practical experience in the laboratory, extensive field experience, and a solid foundation in cognate sciences and mathematics. The department stresses field work in all appropriate classes at all levels. The combination of climate and the geographic and geologic setting of San Antonio provides students with many opportunities to develop their geologic education and skills in the field.
