In the heart of a dynamic geologic environment
Geology is the study of Earth and other planetary bodies; their composition, structure, and evolution. The Portland State University Geology Department excels at both teaching and research, partnering with local businesses, government, regional universities and K-12 schools. We are situated in the Pacific Northwest, a dynamic geologic environment. We capitalize on our unique location and the diversity of our faculty and student body.
