The Department of Earth & Climate Sciences at SF State is devoted to preparing students for careers in geology, water resources, and climate sciences. Students in our BS and BA degree programs experience dynamic learning environments in the classroom, in the field, and in research experience. A foundational value in our department is that all students are mentored by our world-class faculty in individual research experiences as an essential part of their training for careers in Earth science. We invite you to learn more about our mission, academic programs, and student opportunities.
