About the course
Geology applies chemistry, physics, mathematics, and sometimes biology to understanding earth processes, so students take a broad array of ancillary science classes. Additionally, majors train in the specialized laboratory and field skills required by professional geologists.The Department of Geological Sciences provides its majors with a strong foundation in traditional geology as well as broad instruction in multi-disciplinary geosciences. This includes the study of earth processes and materials, environmental science, energy, water resources, marine science, paleontology, and all other major sub-disciplines of geology. The department strongly encourages student participation in research and internship experiences. Majors gain extensive hands-on field and laboratory experience unified around a goal to produce both a practical and theoretical understanding of geosciences.

From a small campus of seven buildings in the wilderness on the main road between Tuscaloosa and Huntsville (now University Boulevard) in the 1830s, UA has grown to a massive 1,970-acre (800 ha) campus in the heart of Tuscaloosa. There are 297 buildings on campus containing some 10,600,000 square feet (980,000 m2) of space. In 2010, the school added 168 acres to its campus by purchasing the land formerly belonging to Bryce Hospital. It also plans to acquire more land to accommodate the continuing growth of the enrolment.
