If you are naturally curious about our planet and interested in finding solutions to global problems, then this course could be for you. You will learn about the physics, chemistry and history of the Earth through examining earth materials such as rocks, minerals and fossils, and using remote sensing techniques such as seismic waves to explore the structure and chemistry of its inaccessible areas. In years one and two you will gain a firm grounding in earth sciences, building your knowledge to inform your choice of third-year options. Your third year also includes an independent mapping project, either in the UK or overseas. We have a large geology collection and the ability to measure unique geochemical reactions, giving you a real feel for geology in practice. The course includes over 40 days of fieldwork in the UK and overseas, the cost of which is included in your tuition fee. All our geology degrees are accredited by the Geological Society of London and transfers between courses may be possible.
