Spring Field Courses

Undergraduates are encouraged to take at least one course that involves working in the field. Several of our Fall and Winter Term courses have lab experiences in the field, and our Spring Term courses are mostly in the field.

"Coming out of W&L geology has made me feel more prepared for graduate school not only because of what I learned in the classroom but also the fieldwork and lab opportunities are exceptional and more abundant than anywhere else I have been. Many of the skills I learned at W&L are not even taught in graduate school."  Kat Telfeyan
