We currently are offering two Geology classes. Most students will be taking a Geology class to fulfill their transfer requirement of a class with a lab component.

Here at Clovis Community College we are surrounded by some of the most remarkable geological locations. In 2013 the Geological Society of America convened in Fresno to study geological locations that are only hours away including Yosemite National Park, the San Andreas Fault, and the Sierra Nevada Foothills. Don't just live here, enjoy your surroundings. Take a geology class and learn to appreciate our area while impressing friends and family with your knowledge of how our area was developed from a geological viewpoint and the materials around us.
