O que eu aprenderei?

If you are interested in studying the processes that have shaped the structure and development of the Earth, this three-year BSc degree is for you.

Course overview

Earth science covers everything from the formation of rocks and minerals to the impact of human activity on the environment.

You'll study the Earth at the molecular, micro and macro-scale, from the chemistry of a single element to the processes that shape the continents.

Your key areas of study include:

  • geology
  • geochemistry
  • geomicrobiology

Understanding how these areas interact and combine to create the complexity of the Earth system is what makes Earth science a fascinating area to study.

The practical skills you develop in geomatics – the fourth element of the degree – allow you to collect and analyse data about the world. This prepares you for diverse and in-demand careers.

Regular field days and residential field courses allow you to experience the Earth in action. You'll develop practical skills and network with Earth science professionals.

Teaching methods

Teaching is delivered through lectures and practicals in:

  • microscopy
  • rock and mineral identification
  • geological mapping
  • geochemistry

Study abroad

Experience life in another country by choosing to study abroad as part of your degree. You’ll be encouraged to embrace fun and challenging experiences, make connections with new communities and graduate as a globally aware professional, ready for your future.

You can choose to spend up to a year studying at a partner institution overseas.

If you choose to study abroad, it will extend your degree by a year.

Work placement

This earth science degree is also available with a year's work placement, as a four-year programme.

You'll apply to spend 9 to 12 months working in any organisation in the world, and receive University support from our dedicated team to secure your dream placement. Work placements take place in Stage 3.

You'll gain first-hand experience of working in the sector, putting your learning into practice and developing your professional expertise.

Placements are subject to availability.

Your future

Earth science graduates are well qualified to enter a wide range of careers and the geoscience industry has a shortage of graduates with the skills taught on this course.

You will be able to enter the global geology industry with potential careers in:

  • mining
  • oil
  • engineering
  • water supply
  • environmental sectors

The emerging alternative energy industry also needs these skills.

You will also develop a portfolio of graduate transferable skills that are highly valued by a wide range of employers outside the earth science sector, and which can open the door to graduate-entry programmes with major employers, such as:

  • team working
  • data analysis
  • data interpretation
  • enterprise
