Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences

The Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences (GPS) provides its undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to pursue studies in environmental science and engineering, geobiology, geochemistry, geology, geophysics, and planetary science.

GPS supports close collaboration between its faculty and students, as well as interdisciplinary studies within and between Caltech's various academic divisions. This broad-based curriculum encompasses the graduate level as well, allowing students with undergraduate degrees not only in geology and related fields but in biology, chemistry, engineering, and physics the chance to excel as researchers and as scholars within GPS.

Current students will find useful information about division contacts, procedures, and activities in the GPS student information gateway.

Course descriptions, schedules, and evaluations are also available online.
