Geological Sciences offered by San Diego State University is the study of the earth, its past, present, and future. Geoscientists apply basic physical, chemical, and biological principles to understand how the earth was formed, how it evolved, and how it may change in the future. 


Key facts

In addition to understanding the origin and evolution of our planet, geologists seek to discover, use, and manage earth’s resources in clean and environmentally responsible ways, and manage our water resources in a renewable way. The challenges of the Geological Sciences program, offered by the San Diego State University, will grow as geoscientists address major societal issues including dwindling energy resources, climate change, environmental pollution, and natural disasters from earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and coastal subsidence
