Experience Earth!

Develop a deeper and more meaningful relationship with a planet!  The science of geology deals with the non-living (mostly) part of the planet.  Our focus is on natural resources (oil, groundwater and minerals), earth history (fossils, climate change, mountain building) and earth processes (from volcanoes, earthquakes and glaciers to ancient sea beds, minerals and the earth's interior).
CSUB's geology program focuses heavily on the earth's crust...particularly sedimentary rocks and basins that are host to large accumulations of oil and groundwater.  But our students study geology around the globe...from our local San Joaquin Basin and Sierra Nevada mountains to Iceland, Turkey and South Africa!
