Geology examines our natural world, studying problems that range in scale from a single mineral grain to the entire solar system.
Studying this complex natural system is an intrinsically interdisciplinary endeavor, so geology draws upon the tools of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, geography, and environmental science. Geologists are flexible and well-rounded scientists, tackling such varied topics as earthquakes, climate change, the formation of continents and oceans, resource development, and the origins of life. Geology majors at Oxy have the opportunity to explore geology on campus and in the unparalleled natural laboratory of southern California.
