Geology Program

Geology was one of the core science programs at Berea College for many years but with the retirement of the last professor in 2003, the program went into a hiatus. In 2018, we are pleased to be bringing back earth sciences to Berea College in the new science building. In fall of 2018, Dr. Suzanne Birner will be joining us after she has finished her PhD at Stanford University in Geology and Environmental Sciences.  She will be working to develop a new curriculum in geology to restart the program and open this field to a new generation of Berea College students.
