The Geology program focuses on identifying earth materials and use of geologic maps, stratigraphic sections, remote sensing imagery, and plate tectonic concepts, then using these techniques and theory to model real-world applications.
Core Geology classes include:
- Physical Geology
- Historical Geology
Related electives include:
- Fundamentals of Biology
- Geographic Information Systems
- Global Positioning Systems
- Field Geology (ESC 35 classes)
Geology Majors go into a variety of careers. Some examples are:
|Hydrologic Technician (HydroTec)||Secondary Education (w/credential)||Certified Engineer Geologist|
|Geologic Technician (GeoTech)||Cartographer (maps)||Conservation Officer|
|Surveying Technician||Planning & Development Surveyor||Geotechnical Engineer|
|GIS/Geospacial Technician||GIS Technician/Analyst||Petroleum Engineer|
|Environmental Consultant||Certified Hydrologist|
Students successfully completing the Geology Associate in Science for Transfer (AS-T) Degree have a solid foundation for pursuing further education in Geology or a related field. This AS-T degree is specifically designed to streamline transfer to CSU, see www.adegreewithaguarantee.com for details. UC transfer is streamlined by following a UC Transfer Pathway . Please see a counselor for your best major prep and general education pattern for your specific goals.
