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.
