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.
