Minor in Paleontology

The Minor in Paleontology is an exciting opportunity for any student in any major here at Sonoma State University. Students from any major on the SSU campus can add a cross-disciplinary concentration in the study and analysis of ancient life on Earth. Paleontology is by its very nature an inter-disciplinary field of study, blending both laboratory and field studies of modern organisms and extinct organisms. Some paleontologists approach the field from a geological perspective, and others approach it from a biological perspective. Mars is much in the news lately, but Earth is still the only place to study ancient life.
