The department’s emphasizes field activities and hands-on experiences. Many of our courses include field trips that provide opportunities for students to experience firsthand the topics covered in class. Field trip locations include the Palos Verdes Peninsula and Santa Monica Mountains, as well as more distant destinations such as the Sierra Nevada Range, Mono Lake, Mojave National Preserve, Death Valley, and Mt. San Jacinto. The combination of classroom, field, and laboratory experiences enable our students to find employment in diverse fields such as urban/regional planning, environmental monitoring and consulting, and natural resources management. Many of our majors go on to graduate school.
