Field Trips

Field trips (also referred to as fieldwork) are a significant component of the GPS academic programs. Our students take faculty-led trips to such nearby locations as Death Valley and the San Gabriel Mountains and to more distant places, such as Hawaii and Asia; these expeditions give students firsthand experiences with—and understanding of—geological phenomena most people never encounter outside of a laboratory or classroom.
