  Faculty of Earth Science   
  The history of this faculty dates back to the establishment of the department of Geology in 1975 at the Faculty of Sciences, Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz (at that time JundiShapour University). Since then till 1979 the main objective of the department was to offer courses for undergraduate students in the field of geology and to train qualified manpower for private and public sectors. However there was a halt in the academic and educational activities during the Islamic Revolution in 1979. In 1983 department restarted its activities with a glorious speed such that postgraduate courses were added to the undergraduate one and in 2010 university council decreed the establishment of the Faculty of Earth Sciences with three departments of Geology, Remote Sensing and Geography. At present the faculty presents undergraduate courses for Geology and geography. Also in the post graduate section, MSc and PhD in Hydrology, MSc and PhD in petroleum Geology, MSc and PhD in economic Geology, MA and PhD in geography, as well as MSc in Tectonics and MSc in environmental Geology are performed. It is to be mentioned that in Iran, PhD in Petroleum Geology is offered only in this faculty.
