At Geology at California Lutheran University you'll work closely with other related disciplines—chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics, and geography—as you expand your knowledge on exploring for energy and economic resources, analyzing geologic hazards, and mitigating the human impact on the environment.
Meaningful research that connects to your future
Doing research in a field you are passionate about gives you valuable and relevant experience for your future career. Prior student research projects have included:
- A study of the Miocene Ricardo Formation in Red Rock Canyon State Park by a student who now works as an exploration geologist for Exxon/Mobil.
- A study of the vertebral column of the beaked whale Mesoplodon europaeus by a student who is now pursuing a Ph.D. in vertebrate paleontology at the University of Michigan.
Along with being accepted in graduate schools around the country, many Cal Lutheran geology majors have entered careers in petroleum geology, geophysics and the environmental geology fields.
In both the public and private sectors, geologists are hired to study groundwater pollution, earthquake hazards and landslides. They also work in the mining and petroleum industries, or in research laboratories.
