GS 1B: Introduction to Geology
For nonmajors and prospective majors or minors in the Earth Sciences. Introduction to physical geology. Lectures and lab exercises focus on understanding the dynamics of Earth¿s ongoing physical and chemical processes. Major themes include plate tectonics, the rock cycle, the hydrologic cycle, and mineral resources. We will employ local CA geology, current events, and the stateoftheart to drive discussions on landscapes, hazards, and economics. Only one of
GS 1A, 1B, or 1C may be taken for credit. Recommended: high school chemistry.
Terms: not given this year

LINGUIST 121A: The Syntax of English
Course description: A datadriven introduction to the study of generative syntax through an indepth investigation of the sentence structure of English. Emphasis is on central aspects of English syntax, but the principles of theory and analysis extend to the study of the syntax of other languages. The course focuses on building up syntactic argumentation skills via the collective development of a partial formal theory of sentence structure, which attempts to model native speaker knowledge. Satisfies the WIM requirement for Linguistics and the WAYFR requirement. Prerequisites: none (can be taken before or after Linguistics 121B). The discussion section is mandatory.
