Geology

In geology you learn about the physics, chemistry and history of the solid earth through examining collectable earth materials such as rocks, minerals and fossils, and by using remote sensing techniques such as seismic waves to explore the structure and chemistry of its inaccessible areas. Years one and two give you a firm grounding in earth sciences, building your knowledge to help you make informed and appropriate unit choices in the third and fourth years of your degree when a broad range of advanced topics are available for study. You will undertake a detailed, independent mapping project in your third year. A highlight of the course is the free fieldwork programme that will take you all round the UK and into Europe.
