Degree Program: PhD
One of my favorite classes is our Ore Deposits Mapping course, which is a ten day trip around Nevada. We go to all sorts of different deposit types across a handful of different districts and learn how to identify, think about, and map alteration in detail. We bring phase diagrams on hikes, and think about volumes of hydrothermal fluids while walking on quartz veins. You get a ridiculous amount of information every day, but there's no better way to learn. On top of that, you get to tour some crazy small-town Nevada nightlife.
