Wheaton in the Black Hills
Students can complete General Education requirements in the Black Hills with courses over four or eight weeks of study. The mountain geology of the Black Hills give students an extraordinary opportunity to study dynamic earth processes, rocks, minerals and fossils. Clear, dark night skies reveal near and deep space objects, as seen through high-power telescopes. The national forests and parks of the Black Hills, as well as municipal Rapid City, provide venues for the study of environmental issues and man’s role and responsibility in the stewardship of natural resources. All courses include many day trips off-campus and some overnight camping trips to remote locations.
