About

The Geophysics Major is offered by San Diego State University. Geoscientists apply basic physical, chemical, and biological principles to understand how the earth was formed, how it evolved and how it may change in the future. 

Overview

The Geophysics Major is offered by San Diego State University.  In addition to understanding the origin and evolution of our planet, geologists seek to discover, use, and manage earth’s resources in clean and environmentally responsible ways.  

Key Facts

Training in geological sciences prepares students to address major societal issues including dwindling energy resources, climate change, environmental pollution and natural disasters from earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and coastal subsidence. Students who are curious about the planet on which we live, challenged by environmental problems facing humankind, and intrigued by a subject which combines both the arts and applied science, should consider one of our many geological sciences degrees.
