Where classroom geology finally comes alive

Summer 2023 update:

SFA will offer a six-credit hour traveling field experience for the Summer I session with space for up to 10 students from other universities. This field course helps upper-level geology students make the all-important transition from classroom theory to real-world understanding while working in a variety of geologic settings. During the five-week course, we will use the spectacular setting of the American Southwest as a backdrop to help students explore geology in areas of compression, extension, shearing, metamorphism and volcanism.

Estimated Costs

The estimated cost for Texas residents, including tuition and fees, is $2,633. For non-Texas residents, please see the SFA Undergraduate Tuition and Fees table as an estimate of cost.


  • Igneous, Sedimentary and Metamorphic Petrology
  • Stratigraphy
  • Structural Geology

Additionally, the following course is strongly recommended:

  • Field Methods

Because the student to faculty ratio is low, students receive a significant amount of personal attention. View our summer 2023 schedule below for more information.
