Abstract
Brief excerpt from interview: Almost all of our required courses have at least some discussion of various aspects of Hawaiian geology. [In 100], most people put some lectures about Hawaiʻi, volcanoes, coastal processes, depending on who it is... We have two Hawaiian geology courses. GG 103 is a survey of introductory geological concepts, and all the examples are about Hawaiʻi. In the beginning, you just go from island to island and talk about the specific geology of each island. GG 402 is advanced level Hawaiian geology. Neither of those are required.
