Geography and Geology

Physical Geography is the integrative science that deals with processes and patterns in the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere and geosphere, and the interaction of humans and their environment. Geology investigates the dynamics of the Earth, from its origins over 4.5 billion years ago to the processes that define how we live today. Together both subjects have an important role in understanding how humans can deal with environmental change in the future. Delivered jointly by the School of Geography and School of Earth and Environment, you'll combine the study of physical geography and Earth sciences. You’ll tackle diverse questions, from how the climate is likely to change in the future, to the impact of building housing estates in river catchments? At the same time, you’ll study the origins of rocks and minerals, the evolution of life on Earth, volcanism, geological mapping and the use of geological natural resources.
