Course summary

Geology is the study of the world beneath your feet – it’s the course to choose if you want to really understand how the planet, the landscape and life have changed over millions of years. A Geology degree is concerned with the Earth’s origin, structure, composition and history, as well as the physical, chemical and biological processes that have formed it.As part of your course in Geology, you’ll explore diverse topics, including how to describe, analyse and interpret rocks, how volcanoes are formed, how ice ages originate, how to search for oil and gas, and what Britain was like 300 million years ago. Our Geology degree emphasises applied geology, so you will learn vital skills for the workplace, including geographical information systems (GIS), geological mapping, and geological methods. The final year also includes several industry led workshops. We pride ourselves on offering some of the most extensive fieldwork of any UK university Geology course, at locations in the UK and overseas, which currently include Iceland and Spain.
