University Majors

California State University, Sacramento
Geology B.S.

Geology B.S.

Geology is the study of the earth, its environments, and its history. It is an interdisciplinary science that combines geological observations and concepts with those of biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics. Its goals are to study rocks, minerals, fossils, and energy and water resources, and to understand geologic principles and processes that shape the earth and its environments.

The Sacramento State Geology program has three objectives: 1) to encourage students to think scientifically; 2) to provide students with the knowledge base to make progress in geology after leaving Sacramento State; and 3) to teach students basic skills such as using a petrographic microscope and field equipment, how to construct a geologic map, and how to write a technical geologic report.
