Overview

The Earth surface system is dynamic and diverse, with changes driven by the interplay of physical, chemical, geological and biological processes in a wide range of environments. Drawing on the complementary expertise of staff in Geology and Physical Geography, this integrated degree programme provides a clear view of the controlling processes that link landscape evolution with environmental change and natural events that impact human activity. Fieldwork in Years Two and Three at Liverpool is designed specifically for this degree programme integrating geology and geomorphology. Students have academic tutors from both disciplines in Years One and Two.

Your training will include the comprehensive study of surface and near-surface processes, relevant to many industrial, engineering and environmental employment sectors. Years One and Two cover a wide range of geological and physical geography topics, allowing for greater choice in the final year. A research-based dissertation is undertaken in Year Three on a geological and/or geomorphological topic. A two-week field class to south eastern Spain in Year Three has been designed exclusively for Geology and Physical Geography students, integrating all aspects of the degree.

Career opportunities

There has never been a better time to study Earth Sciences. Many of the fundamental questions of our times will be answered by geoscientists, as we seek to provide sustainable resources for the world’s population, as well as predict and mitigate climate change and natural hazards by building a better understanding of the planet on which we live.

The majority of our recent graduates have gained employment within a degree-related field or continued within further education after graduation. We have close links with geoscience and environmental industries ensuring that our degrees properly equip you for future employment. The truly interdisciplinary nature of our degrees additionally makes graduates in the Earth Sciences highly sought after by other employment sectors.
