San Francisco State University
Earth Sciences B.S.

The Bachelor of Science in Earth Sciences is designed for students intending to prepare for direct entry into a career as a professional in industry or government, or for graduate school in any of the Earth sciences, such as geology, oceanography, and meteorology. Courses in the BS degree`s Earth Sciences Core, supported by courses in the Basic Science and Math Foundation, give students a strong understanding of the structure and behavior of Earth`s systems (geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere) and the physical process through which they interact. The Earth Sciences Core courses teach not only interdisciplinary science concepts but also skills in quantitative problem solving, field work, and writing and oral communication, which are directly applicable to both graduate school and a career. Students will develop disciplinary depth by selecting one of three emphases: Geology, Hydrology, or Oceans, Weather & Climate.
