DescriptionGeology is the science of the origins, composition and evolution of the Earth over 5 billion years, and the processes that change the Earth and form the foundation for our existence
As a graduate student in geology and geoscience, you will combine geological science with new knowledge and new methods within areas such as biology, physics, chemistry, nanotechnology, ecology, climatology and archaeology to build a holistic picture of the Earth's structure and evolution, providing you with an overview of our natural conditions of life.
You can choose between six tracks, or specialisations: Geochemistry, Mineralogy and Petrology; Geological Applied Geophysics; Geomorphology; Palaeoclimate; Sedimentary Basin Studies, and Water Resources.
