Events and Announcements

Welcome to The Department of Geological Sciences at California State University Long Beach!

Since 1955, our program has a proud tradition with a continuing commitment in preparing our students for professional careers or further post-graduate education. Our program is based solidly in fundamental geological skills with an emphasis in field experiences. We offer the degrees at both the Bachelor's and Master's level.

We are located 10 minutes from the beach, one hour from the mountains and the San Andreas Fault, and two hours from the desert!
