Course summary

Overview

As a Geology PhD student at the Camborne School of Mines, you will lead research projects that have a significant impact on both your chosen field of study and wider society. We work on a variety of different topics including ore deposit geology, volcanology, palaeontology, palaeoclimate, and structural geology. We have strong links with the mining industry, and also with colleagues in the Geography and Biosciences departments to address issues of past environmental and ecological change.

Potential students with more of a focus on mining engineering, mineral processing, or the environmental impacts of mining may wish to investigate our Mining and Minerals PhD program instead.
