Geological and Environmental Sciences

Disciplines within the geological and environmental sciences are directed toward understanding the terrestrial system from the core of the Earth to beyond our solar system. Students will conduct applied and basic research in an effort to understand physical processes on and within the Earth, and human influences that affect the environment.

Employment opportunities are excellent. Our graduates work for agencies such as the California Department of Water Resources, the United States Geological Survey, and the Environmental Protection Agency. Graduates are also employed by private companies specializing in mineral and petroleum exploration, engineering or environmental consulting, and pollution remediation.
