Course summary

**Course overview**: Studying geology is studying the Earth – the materials it’s made of, their structure and the processes acting on them. It’s a huge science that overlaps with other sciences, maths and engineering. This BSc (Hons) Geology course provides you with the knowledge and understanding of a range of applied geoscience disciplines. You develop core geological skills in sedimentology, igneous and metamorphic geology, and structural geology. The first two years of study give a thorough grounding in the major principles of geology, together with an overview of earth system science and the fundamentals of mineralogy, stratigraphy, geological maps and surveying.The course includes a field-based module during each year to ensure you are confident using geology field skills, surveying, geological mapping and environmental impact assessments. In the final year you have the opportunity to apply these skills within a range of professional and technical environments including the option of an international field trip and focused modules aimed at enhancing employability.A key benefit to studying geology at Teesside University is the learning linked to our location. Fieldwork is integral to our programme – Teesside is ideally placed to explore the geological diversity of its region. Study the North Jurassic coast running from Saltburn to Scarborough – also known as Yorkshire’s Jurassic Park where rocks from the Jurassic period are exposed along the Yorkshire coast in a series of cliffs and bays. Also within easy reach are the unique North York Moors, a manmade moorland created by Neolithic man and the Yorkshire Dales, limestone upland and unique limestone pavements. All these locations provide opportunities to gain valuable practical experience. In the final year you have the option to take part in an overseas field trip.**After the course**: You develop a broad skills portfolio so that you can work in a range of careers. Geology graduates enjoy excellent career opportunities in mineral and petroleum exploration and production, geotechnics, engineering geology and environment-related industries in the UK and overseas.
