Please take the opportunity to provide us feedback that will assist us with assessing the implementation of our geophysics program in Geography-Earth Science coursework.  This survey is optional and anonymous so your responses will not be tied to any specific individual for any reason. By completing the survey below, you agree to allow the Department of Geography & Earth Science to use your responses in its assessment of the geophysics program, and in possible publications resulting from your feedback.

  1. Based on your previous experiences (not through coursework), were you aware of the science of geophysics, and its applications in solving Geography-Earth Science problems?
  1. Through the undergraduate courses you have taken at Shippensburg, have you been exposed to the theories of geophysics, as well as geophysical methods and their applications in Geography Earth Science fields?
  1. Through undergraduate research experiences you have participated in at Shippensburg, have you been exposed to geophysical methods and their applications in Geography Earth Science fields?
4)      If you answered A or B above (in question 2 or 3), please list the courses you have taken where geophysical methods were presented as well as the semester and year  
Course 1:  Semester:  Fall or   Spring     Year: 
Course 2:  Semester:  Fall or   Spring Year: 
Course 3:  Semester:  Fall or   Spring  Year: 
Course 4:  Semester:  Fall or   Spring  Year: 
  1. If you have been exposed to geophysical techniques, which of the following techniques have you been exposed to?
  1. Please rate your understanding of the theories and applications of geophysics. (click the appropriate box)
 

            a.  Very thorough understanding of theories; Feel very confident in my abilities to use geophysical methods.

            b.  Thorough understanding of theories; Feel somewhat confident in my abilities to use geophysical methods.

  
            c.  Minimal understanding of theories; Feel minimally confident in my abilities to use geophysical methods.    
            d.  No understanding of theories; Not at all confident in my abilities to use geophysical methods.   

            e.  Not applicable; I have not been exposed to geophysics.

  
  7.  Do you feel that you would like to have had additional courses or coursework in geophysics and geophysical methods?
 8. Are you aware of internships, graduate schools, jobs, or careers that make use of geophysical applications to solve real world problems?
 9. Are you interested in pursuing an internship, job, or career that makes use of geophysical applications to solve real world problems?
10.   If you have any additional interests in geophysics, or any comments that you would like to share with department faculty regarding geophysics, please feel free to use the space below.   
 
11.  Are you a:    Freshman        Sophomore     Junior    Senior    Graduate Student     Alumni
