The Keele Single Honours Geoscience course provides a modern approach to the study of Planet Earth: its structure, composition, processes, history, and its mineral and energy resources. The course also places emphasis on the relevance of Geoscience to the needs of society, including the search for natural resources such as oil, coal, minerals, aggregates and water, as well as the increasing importance of the application of environmental and engineering geoscience within our industrialised society. Geoscience also draws on knowledge from many different aspects of the physical sciences such as chemistry, biology and physics, as well as other subjects such as physical geography, environmental science and economics. CONTENT: - An innovative and interdisciplinary course - No previous knowledge of geoscience subjects, such as Geology, required - A wide range of career options and wealth of job opportunities - Development of field, laboratory and information technology skills to provide an appropriate knowledge base for a range of careers in the academic world, the public sector or industry - Fully-integrated fieldwork programme including overseas field courses, opportunities for independent study through research projects and fieldwork exercises - Modern laboratories and computing facilities running specialist Geoscience software
