Selected Courses

Physical Geology - Learning of the basic ways geology affects the world. Next fall, I'll teach a paleontology class, which will give an overview of the history of the life on earth, how we study them, and what they tell us.


Earlham is a place that you can get your arms arms around. “It's nice to be able to get to know my students and interact with them more than just standing in front of a classroom and lecturing,” says Elizabeth Rhenberg.

Rhenberg teaches courses in geology and paleontology at Earlham. Crinoids are her main research interest, both their evolution and their place in the Echinoderm Tree of Life. “I’m particularly interested in camerate crinoids from the Mississippian,” she says.
