Presentación

Geoscience impacts on most aspects of modern life and geoscientists are required to explore for much needed future energy, mineral and metal resources.

The Geoscience single honours degree course builds on our core geology modules by adding wider, interdisciplinary elements such as geophysics and geochemistry to your degree. In addition to looking at rocks, minerals and fossils, how they were formed, what they can tell us about the history of the Earth and its past environments, as well as investigating geological processes such as plate tectonics, you will also study broader subjects such as geoscience and society, forensic geoscience and Earth systems. There is a strong emphasis on applied problem-solving laboratory classes and fieldwork learning in the course, with field courses both in the UK and overseas.

Requisitos

We accept a number of EU and International qualifications for entry to our degree programmes.
Please note that there will normally be English Language requirements for entry to our courses.

Salidas profesionales

Geoscience graduates are needed more than ever as modern society demands increasing amounts of energy, raw materials and other resources such as water, the vast majority of which are discovered by geoscientists, and this is likely to continue into the foreseeable future. Geoscientists are also needed for civil engineering in designing foundations and tunnels and in environmental projects such as carbon dioxide sequestration. You could go on to work in the mining, oil and gas, hydrogeology or geotechnical sectors. The single honours Geoscience degree is accredited by the Geological Society of London which can speed your progression towards Chartered Geologist status.
