NTSC-40 A-F NATURAL SCIENCE
1 unit each; 3 to 8 day excursions.
This is a field study on the natural history of a specific region. Educational institutions and areas of scientific interest will be visited. Lecture and examinations will be given en route. The academic areas of Anthropology, Botany, Biology, Geology, Astronomy, Physics, Chemistry, and Zoology will be investigated where applicable.NTSC-40G GRAND CANYON
1 unit: 9 hours lecture, 50 hours total lab.
In this course, students traverse the Grand Canyon on foot from the North to South Rims and this involves a backpack trip of 24.5 miles in four days. There is usually space for 6-8 non-backpackers who stay with the bus to study the rims, the canyon at Page, Arizona, and the Painted Desert. The entire trip requires seven nights and eight days. Except for two nights on the ground for backpackers, lodging is in motels and hotels. There are two evening class meetings preceding and one following the trip.

being for 1 unit, ''B'' for 2 units, and ''C'' for 3 units.)
This course is offered as special opportunities arise for field study in the natural sciences, such as Biology, Ecology, Physical Anthropology, Geology, and Cultural Anthropology. Work will take place in the field, the laboratory, and/or the museum providing practical experiences in observation, collection, preservation, identification, preparation for exhibition or other work required of active scientists. This course is not repeatable.
