Earth Sciences

The study of Earth Sciences combines geology and physical geography to develop and explore our natural resources and manage natural hazard risk to become better stewards of our environment.

Subject overview

Earth Sciences is a fascinating and relevant subject about the world around us. At a time when there are so many pressures on the planet, scientific study of the Earth is crucial, with geologists playing a vital role in finding and developing resources, as well as working to protect the environment.

Earth Sciences studies the physical forces that act on the Earth, the chemistry of its materials, and the biology of its past. Our courses cover a diverse range of subjects such as volcanology, geothermal energy, paleo-climates, economic geology, natural hazards, applied geophysics and various rock and mineral forming processes.

You will learn skills related to critical and spatial thinking, field observations, laboratory work and quantitative techniques.

Where can Earth Sciences take you?

Study in Earth Sciences leads a wide and exciting variety of career paths. Trained Earth Scientists find work locally or internationally, working for geological and exploration companies, engineering companies, environmental consultancies, central government and local authorities. You could find yourself responsible for monitoring hazards such as volcanic activity, landslips or earthquakes. You can even use your data analysis training to move into IT industries.
