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. A master's or Ph.D. in Geology or Earth Sciences can lead to further opportunities in seismology, volcanology, hydrology, paleontology, oceanography, research, management, policy, and education.
See a counselor or the Department Chair for more specific information.
