Overview

This four-year MESci Geology and Physical Geography degree is a strongly integrated programme benefiting from the complementary research expertise of staff in Geology and Physical Geography. The degree provides thorough training in the multidisciplinary approach required to document and understand spatial and temporal variations in physical processes operating on the Earth. The first two years are shared with the BSc programme. The final two years provide a wider choice of taught modules and a comprehensive fieldwork programme. In addition, you have the opportunity to design and undertake a major individual research project that will provide you with skills in analysis, synthesis, problem solving, and reporting.

Your training will focus on practical and quantitative aspects of geological and geographical science through study of the interaction of surface and near surface processes on the Earth. Research-based dissertations on topics of your choice are undertaken in Years Three and Four on projects that are geological and/or geomorphological. Year Four includes the opportunity for additional field courses to Dorset (applied basin analysis) or Tenerife (volcanic processes).

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.
