Field Experiences

Undergraduate Research Opportunities


Undergraduate Field Experiences 

This list is not exhaustive, but it is a good place to start.  Many of the sites below offer 3 and 6 credit hours that are transferable to WKU's GEOG 452 course.  In order to get credit for a field course from another institution, you would need to transfer your academic transcripts to WKU.  If you have any questions about the field course, please contact the field course professor/director directly.  

Not all field experiences are acceptable.  Double check with your advisor to verify that a particular field course will be transferable to WKU.

For your major at WKU, you will need to select a single 6 hour field experience, or a take GEOL 380 plus a 3 credit hour field experience.
