Due to the pandemic arrangements are a bit different for 2021 -- more information at the link in the header above.

Usually, Earth Science Field School is a 12-day, field-based, summer session course, generally taken by SEOS students between their second and third year of studies.  It is a required course for students in our Earth Sciences and Geophysics (both Major and Honours) programs and is an option for students in our Chemistry, Biology and Geography combined programs.  It is also required to meet the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of BC (APEGBC) academic qualifications for both their 'Geology' and 'Environmental Geoscience' designations. 

Usually, while enrollment dependant, it is anticipated that two sections of the course will be offered concurrently in the last half of August this year*.  Enrollments for both these sections will be limited to approximately 28 students each and preference will be given to declared students whose SEOS program requires the course.  A participation fee over and above regular tuition will apply to this course.  Pre-requisites of EOS 201 (Sedimentary Geology) and EOS 202 (Structural Geology) are strictly enforced. More course information.

* in most years, the course is offered immediately after the spring examination period.

Advanced Field Geology is a field-based, summer session course, generally 10 to 14 days in duration, typically taken by SEOS students between their third and fourth year of studies.  It is a required course for students in our Earth Sciences (Major and Honours) programs. For the 2023 offering only, this course will be held April 28 – May 10, 2023. Moving forward, this course will be held annually, likely in mid-to-late May. Enrollment will be limited to approximately 28 students and preference will be given to declared students whose SEOS program requires the course.  A participation fee over and above regular tuition will apply to this course.  Pre-requisites of EOS 300 and EOS 316 (Igneous and Metamorphic Geology) are strictly enforced.
