Geology & Geophysics
Join the continuous journey of excellence for the next 100 years!
Founded in 1922, the LSU Department of Geology and Geophysics has developed into a
comprehensive program for teaching and research in the earth sciences. With the longest continuously running camp in the US and a leading role in preserving Louisiana’s coastline, the department remains a
magnet for top faculty and students. In the past century, it awarded over 850 graduate
degrees (MS and PhD) and approximately three times as many BS degrees.
In 2022, at our centennial gala, the College of Science launched the “Second Century,” aiming to raise $2 million for LSU Geology & Geophysics. Join the continuous journey of excellence for the next 100 years with robust community support! Contribute to the success of our students through our three priority areas.
