GEOG 300    Physical Geography: Exploring Earth's Environmental Systems    3 Units

Prerequisite: None.
Advisory: GEOG 301
General Education: AA/AS Area IV; CSU Area B1; IGETC Area 5A
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC
Description: This course investigates the interrelationships between Earth and humans, with an emphasis on natural systems (solar energy balance, weather and climate, water resources, landforms, natural hazards, vegetation, and soil). Relevant application of these elements to today's world is stressed to help students better understand Earth's physical environment as well as human-environment interaction. A field trip may be required to relate class discussions to the real world. (C-ID GEOG 110)

GEOG 301    Physical Geography Laboratory    1 Unit

Prerequisite: None.
Corequisite: GEOG 300
General Education: CSU Area B3; IGETC Area 5C
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LAB
Description: This course provides "hands-on" study of the basic principles and concepts involved in understanding Earth's physical environment. Lab topics include observation, measurement and analysis of Earth's energy balance, weather and climate, vegetation, landforms, and natural hazards, as well as topographic map reading, interpretation, and navigation skills. Field trips and spatial data collection activities may be required. (C-ID GEOG 111)

Prerequisite: None.
Advisory: GEOG 300; CISC 300 or equivalent with a grade of "C" or better
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 50 hours LEC ; 12 hours LAB
Description: This course introduces students to the exciting world of maps (both hard-copy and digital) and the geographic techniques and technologies that are utilized in the creation of modern cartographic documents. The examination of cartographic constructs, basic statistics, Global Positioning Systems (GPS), Internet mapping, remote sensing, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) will shed light on this interesting and rapidly changing area of spatial inquiry. A portable USB storage device may be required for this class. Short field activities may be required. (C-ID GEOG 150)

GEOG 390    Field Studies in Geography    1-4 Units

Prerequisite: None.
Advisory: GEOG 300
Course Transferable to CSU
Hours: 24 hours LEC ; 144 hours LAB
Description: This course covers the field study of geographic principles and processes of specific areas (mountains, deserts, seashore, etc.). Course content will vary by destination. Topics may include physical geography, human geography, and/or geographic techniques such as the application of tools and techniques used for geographic field research (e.g., map and compass use, the Global Positioning System (GPS), Geographic Information Systems (GIS), etc.). Field trip(s) are required. For specific details, see the course description listed in the schedule. Students will be responsible for providing their own lodging (or camping equipment) and meals. At a minimum it is recommended that students be prepared to spend a full day in the field. This may require a day-pack, water container(s), food, foul weather gear, field notebook, clipboard, whistle, and personal safety gear (warm clothing, medications, cell phone, GPS, sunscreen, sunglasses, hiking shoes, and a hat).

This field class will explore the geography of the American River Watershed. The class is intended to introduce students to river processes and how human activity in the river canyon has altered the way that the river "works". Some light hiking is required. The class will meet four times, twice on the EDC campus in Placerville for pre and post-trip lectures and orientation, and twice for the actual field activity. The class will meet at the El Dorado Center campus on October 25 and November 29, with a field trip on November 1-2. Only students enrolled in the course and have signed the appropriate waivers and other documents may participate. Transportation will be provided by either Folsom Lake College or in some cases students may have to drive to a field location. Food and lodging arrangements and costs are the responsibility of the student. In some instances entrance fees may be required and those fees will be the responsibility of the student (Students who qualify due to a lack of sufficient funds may request the field trip fee be waived).
