Geology with Geography with a Year in Industry

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 in later years. Take your pick from a wide range of modulescovering topics such as geomorphology, hydrology, fossil fuels and geophysics. You will enhance your studies and employability by spending your third year on an industrial work placement, giving you hands on experience whilst developing your skills, knowledge and industry contacts. 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). This demonstrats the crucial role we play in influencing both the scientific community and environmental policy makers. The reputation of our School of Environmental Sciences means that, as a UEA Geology with Geography graduate, you’ll be in demand within the industry. Our graduates 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. **Course Structure** Your four-year course will cover a broad range of topics, moving from a first year that provides you with an essential foundation, through to more flexibility as you progress. **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 help you shape your studies over the next two years. **Year 2** In your second year you’ll take modules on Exarth 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 will spend your third year on an industrial work placement lasting from 9-14 months, gaining relevant experience and developing your skills and knowledge. We have established links throughout the UK and beyond, and we will help you in identifying and competing for appropriate positions. **Year 4** In your final year you’ll spend a substantial amount of time on your Independent Project, giving you the chance to investigate an area of interest in depth and put everything you’ve learnt throughout your degree into practice. You will also have the opportunity to select from a range of optional modules – including topics covering geophysical hazards, paleoclimatology and an overseas geosciences field course. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
