Subject: what geometry is taught in college?
We teach three undergraduate geometry courses: one for future high school

teachers which basically goes over high school geometry, hopefully with a

little more perspective; a course called modern geometries, which is

basically hyperbolic geometry through the Poincare halfplane, and whose

audience is again largely future high school teachers; and differential

geometry, whose audience is largely math majors and majors in fields close

to math (e.g. physics). Of course much of calculus is also concerned with

geometry -- area, arclength, surfaces, curvature, and so on.
