Subject

Earth sciences

Refine and develop your skills in geology and the Earth sciences. This four-year programme follows the BSc structure for the first three years (with the third year studying abroad if you take the Year Abroad option) and culminates with a fourth year of Master’s modules. You will undertake a substantial piece of independent research on a topic of your choosing. You will also study advanced-level modules, choosing from topics such as isotope geochemistry, geosciences field work and climate geoengineering. Specific pathways through our BSc and MSci Geology with Geography degrees are accredited by the Geological Society of London, making it easier for you to qualify as a Chartered Geologist after graduation.

Modules

Our Environmental Earth Sciences degree covers a wide range of topics from fossil fuels to volcanos. In Year 1, you will be introduced to a range of compulsory topics which will provide the foundation to your studies. Examples of these modules include Understanding the Dynamic Planet, Global Environmental Challenges and Research and Field Skills. As your studies progress, you will study environmental relationships with other science disciplines - an opportunity which is not usually available in traditional Earth science departments. In Years 2 and 3, you will have a combination of compulsory and optional modules examples including, Earth Science Skills, Soil Process and Environmental Issues, Earth and Life and Fossil Fuels. In your final year, you will complete an independent research project which matches your interests. You will also get the chance to study your choice of advanced level modules such as Geophysical Hazards and Managing Natural Hazards.
