Geology with Geography with a Year Abroad

Studying Geology with Geography will help you understand the solid Earth and the societal consequences of its processes – such as volcanoes, earthquakes and floods. You’ll explore the interaction of human society and the Earth using geology, geography, social science and the core sciences, with the opportunity to focus on areas that most interest you. You’ll gain an important foundation in research skills, biodiversity and sustainability in your first year, before specialising as you progress through the course. Take your pick from a wide range of modules covering topics such as geomorphology, hydrology, fossil fuels and geophysics. You'll also study advanced, Masters-level modules in your final year and complete an in-depth research project. Our vast research expertise means we provide world-class teaching, and our international reputation ensures UEA graduates are highly sought after. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework we were ranked first in the UK for the impact of our world-leading research in Earth Systems and Environmental Sciences (Times Higher REF2014 Analysis), demonstrating the crucial role we play in influencing both the scientific community and environmental policy makers. As a Geology with Geography graduate you’ll be in great demand within the industry. Graduates of UEA’s School of Environmental Sciences are held in high esteem in the wider geosciences community for the high levels of laboratory, field and transferable skills you acquire during the course. You’ll also benefit from a flexible and adaptable degree programme, where conventional subject boundaries are dissolved to give you an integrated learning experience. What’s more, this degree gives you the opportunity to spend your third year studying and living abroad with one of our university exchange partners in Australasia, New Zealand, North America or Europe. Going to a university in another country is your opportunity to experience other cultures and lifestyles, as well as studying within departments where different aspects of Geology and Geography are taught. **Course Structure** This four-year course follows a similar structure to the MSci Geology with Geography programme, but with a year spent abroad with one of our university exchange partners. **Year 1** In your first year you’ll build a strong foundation of knowledge through compulsory modules in Understanding the Dynamic Planet, Physical and Chemical processes in the Earth system, and Research and Field Skills. You’re likely to come across new subjects – sparking interests that may shape your studies over the next three years. **Year 2** In your second year you’ll take modules on Earth science skills, global tectonics and sedimentology. Alongside these you’ll have the freedom to tailor your course with optional subjects from a wide range of specialist modules – including subjects such as geomorphology, geophysics and hydrogeology. **Year 3** You’ll spend your third year studying abroad at one of our university exchange partners. We’ll do our best to place you at the university of your choice, based on your field of interest and placement preferences. **Year 4** In your final year you’ll carry out a substantial piece of independent research in a topic that matches your interests. Alongside this you’ll study advanced level subjects chosen from a wide range of optional modules, such as research topics in Earth sciences and stable isotope geochemistry. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
