California University of Pennsylvania

Est. 1852

California University of Pennsylvania is a regionally accredited, state-system university that is proud to offer 100 percent online land management programs, designed to meet the workforce needs of the oil and gas industry.

Cal U offers two programs in land management that prepare students for challenging positions in the oil and gas industry, including staff or operations landman, support staff for an energy company or third-party contractor, property manager, leasing manager, or title abstractor. Employees in these positions may research land titles and resource rights, acquire temporary rights-of- way and negotiate leases between landowners and energy companies.

The B.A. in jurisprudence includes a land management emphasis on legal topics related to the oil and gas industry, oil and gas related land management, surface and sub-surface geology and geographical information systems (GIS). Designed for students who hold an associate’s degree or have completed at least 40 college credits, the bachelor’s degree program may be completed in four to six semesters, depending on the number of credit hours earned prior to admission.

The land management certificate is an accelerated program for students with at least a high school diploma. The 31-credit program, which can be completed in five semesters, emphasizes legal topics, oil and gas-related land management, geology and geographical information systems (GIS).

The university is always proud to see their students graduate and obtain employment.
