All of our classrooms, laboratories, computer facilities, and faculty offices are in the Fine Arts Building, next to the Physical Science Building of the Cooper Science Complex.

Don’t let the name of our building fool you. Our facilities boast spacious work areas, faculty and student research laboratories, up-to-date equipment, a wireless computer network as well as a dedicated computer lab, exhibit areas, and full electronic classroom facilities to provide an excellent environment for student learning.

We have separate classroom/laboratories for introductory courses, mineral and rock courses, fossil and stratigraphy courses, landforms and structural geology courses, and environmental/geochemistry courses. There are also research labs for hydrology, tectonics, petrology, sedimentary geology, micropaleontology, water quality and geochemistry, landform analysis, computer graphics and mapping.
