Return to Degree Plans & Certificates - By Degree Type Return to: Degree Plans & Certificates - By Degree Type

Geology is the study of the earth. It is a field of study that involves the nature and properties of the materials composing the earth, the processes that continuously change the Earth, and the history and development of the earth during its 4.6 billion year history. The study of geology offers unusual opportunities to integrate knowledge from many disciplines in trying to understand natural earth phenomena.

Students who choose to major in geology typically do so in order to increase their understanding of our natural environment and to gain the geologic knowledge and skills that can be applied to a professional career in natural resource exploration, resource development and management, environmental geology, teaching, and/or research.

Palo Alto College has signed 2 + 2 articulation agreements with area colleges and universities. Students following these degree plans should consult with a faculty advisor for guidance.
