Natural History: the narratives of the natural world. Students in this concentration study the living worlds that have been and are being evolved, and can, if they wish, connect the living world to the physical processes that shape the Earth and produced the geological record. Planetary science, geology, biology, and physical anthropology guide these stories. Field experience is often an integral part of this endeavor. The concentration advisors are Professor Rachootin, Professor Farnham, and Professor Savoy. Here is the course-list for the Natural History concentration.
