To me, geology is the quintessential liberal arts degree. I can find a link between geology and almost everything else, and my interests touch almost every discipline or current event. But geology is not only about the present. That is one of the beauties of a geological understanding. Time becomes an enormous backdrop, and instants in time, while engaging and even important, take on a different significance when seen in the context of millions or billions of years. I'm also interested in change, how the earth changes, how rocks and minerals change when subjected to different environments, how societies and cultures change, and how we as individuals change. Geology lets me explore some of that in great detail, and I find that what I learn about change in rocks actually helps me to understand change in myself or in society.
