Geology courses at Whitman College explore the physical, chemical, and biological evolution of the earth from its conception to the present day. Unlike most other sciences, in which you may design an experiment to test an idea, in geology, the experiment has already been completed by the course of nature. As a geologist, you will observe and record the results, such as lava flows, glaciers, or layers of sandstone, and then infer the process responsible.
