Course info

Summary

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Biology and Geology. Our exciting Biology programme provides a broad and fundamental understanding of the world of organisms and is taught in the beautiful surroundings of Keelecampus, with opportunities to visit and study or work at partner institutions in Europe and Malaysia. Biology at Keele focuses on the amazing world of organisms – from how they’ve evolved to their relationships with the environment and each other. Keele takes a broad approach to biology, examining the diversity of life and its evolution from the geological past. You’ll consider the complexity of biological processes and mechanisms at molecular, cellular, organismal and ecosystem levels, exploring related philosophical and ethical issues. You’ll sample, record and analyse data in the field and in our excellent labs, and learn how biology can help to improve the quality and sustainability of life. Complete this course over three years, or add an extra year with anApplied Life Sciences work placement or a one year Study Abroad Placement between the second and third year. Geology examines global change over the whole lifespan of our planet. It is an applied course that studies the Earth’s processes and materials, and the economic and sustainable methods of discovering and utilising its resources. There is a strong emphasis on developing fieldwork, laboratory and applied research skills. Geology at Keele scored 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey in 2016. The Geology course at Keele examines the Earth,its structure, formation, composition, history, processes, resources, hazards and materials. It looks at rocks, minerals and fossils, how they were formed, how they can be exploited as a resource, and what they can tell us about the history of the Earth. It also covers geological processes such as earthquakes, volcanoes and plate tectonics. Geology is a practical subject with applied problem-solving laboratory classes and field courses where you will learn how to interpret andmap geological features, and explore for future geological resources. This course provides a diverse range of specialist options. We focus particularly on applied research skills: you will learn to collect, analyse and interpret different types of geological data, and to carry out your own research using specialist software and equipment. Furthermore, you will complete a comprehensive and integrated UK and overseas fieldwork programme with no cost options.Biology at Keele offers both breadth and depth of knowledge, preparing you for a range of directly or indirectly related careers. You might work as a research scientist, as an environmental consultant, conservationist, in quality control areas of the food industry, in the pharmaceutical industry or as a scientific writer. If you choose to do an Applied Life Sciences Placement you will graduate with the advantage of a significant level of work experience in biology to take to potential employers. The addition of Geology allows development of subject specific-skills like the ability to manipulate, analyse and present geospatial data using industry standard GIS and dr
