Learn about the formation of the solar system and how the Earth and other planets have evolved since their formation 4.5 billion years ago.
This degree course integrates the major subjects studied in a geology degree with aspects of physics and astronomy. It includes specialist study of comparative planetology, extraterrestrial materials, the formation of the elements and the origin of the solar system. Graduates can pursue careers in geology or undertake further study to become planetary science researchers.
In year 4 you will work and study alongside MSc, PhD students and our research scientists. The research skills and independence you develop during this year are highly valued by employers.
