Students

The UC Davis Earth and Planetary Sciences department is the "home away from home" to over 100 geology graduate and undergraduate students. The Geology program, with its Spring and Summer field camps, field trips and research labs, provides students with a unique opportunity to work closely with faculty and researchers outside of the classroom. This interaction results in an active student community, both professionally and socially.
