Geology and Earth Science

Studies in geology can lead to a career in hydrology, environmental policy, teaching, environmental consulting, GIS, environmental education, outreach, science communications, and energy. Students find employment in government (such as with the USGS or EPA), geology and engineering companies, schools, museums, and non-profit organizations. Geology and Earth Sciences are offered as majors at UC and CSU. Career opportunities include seismology, volcanology, hydrology, paleontology, oceanography, research, management, policy, and education.
