Short Courses

Call for GSA Short Course Proposals

Got something that your peers, students, or earth science teachers need to know?

How do I submit a GSA Short Course for the next Annual Meeting.

If you are interested in running a Short/Professional Course at the GSA Annual Meeting, please submit via the Online Proposal Form by 1 February. If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Nocerino, .

What are Short Courses?

Short Courses cover any topic falling under the broad umbrella of geology and its allied disciplines. The aim of the program is to help develop professional, teaching, or research skills at all levels. The courses are taught by established professionals who provide the benefit of their experience to course participants.

Courses geared toward K-12 teachers supply educators with activities and resources to use in their earth science classrooms.

Short Courses are held immediately before the GSA Annual Meeting and are open to either members or non-members.

What audiences do the Short Courses address?

Short Courses provide a mechanism for showcasing new technology or science and can be addressed to multiple audiences. A three-tier course registration fee exists which includes: professionals, faculty, and/or K-12 teachers. When a course is geared toward multiple audiences, the highest level group addressed will determine the administrative cost of the Short Course.
