Faculty

The faculty at Camp Branson includes specialists from many fields of geology. Some are from the University of Missouri, some are from other schools. Not all are present at all times, but individuals active in research in the appropriate specialty direct our projects. Teaching assistants are also available to assist and instruct you in the field and the lab. Our student-instructor ratio during the course is ~6 to 1.
