Do you want to have a career that has a positive impact and helps your community? A major in geosciences prepares you for a career where you can explore, understand, and monitor the earth to protect it and the people who live on it. Geology is an interdisciplinary discipline, integrating principles of physics, chemistry, biology, and mathematics, as well as quantitative and critical thinking skills, to address geological and environmental challenges. The Bachelor of Science in Geology prepares students for employment in petroleum geology, mineral exploration, land-use planning, environmental assessment, hydrology, and engineering geology, or for teaching earth science or physical science at the secondary level.

Coursework and research emphasize field and laboratory investigations of the environment and its geological context and history. We take advantage of the university's proximity to the Sierra Nevadas, the California Coast Ranges, coastal California, and the desert provinces. Our unique location gives faculty and students access to an unparalleled outdoor laboratory, all within short trips from the university. Every student has an opportunity to complete a research project before they graduate. The department's close relationship with state agencies and the private sector enables many students to pursue internships or part-time employment in geologic and environmental work while they complete their degrees.
