Study the relationships between the solid Earth, human society and environmental processes. Gain experience using the principles of geology and physical geography to explore areas such as Earth cycles, fossil fuels, geochemistry, earthquakes, volcanoes, geomorphology and hydrogeology. Field work will form an essential part of your training. As your studies progress you will explore relationships between the dynamic Earth and other disciplines in geography and across the environmental sciences, an opportunity not usually available in traditional geology departments. Improve your graduate prospects with an additional year in industry. You will spend your third year acquiring valuable work experience in your chosen field before returning to UEA for your final year. You will put what you have learned into practice, transforming theory into reality. You will also gain first-hand knowledge of your chosen field and generate crucial employer contacts to prepare you for a competitive job market. When securing your placement, you will benefit from our well-established commercial connections throughout the UK and beyond. In recent years our students have worked for small, mid-size and multinational enterprises in a diverse range of fields, including environmental consultancies, weather forecasting services, and governmental (local and national) and non-governmental organisations, including volcano observatories, geological surveys and conservation groups.
