Geology and Geophysics
Why Study Geology and Geophysics?
Geology and geophysics are subjects that are fundamental to our understanding of the Earth's history, structure, resources, and processes, and together they underpin some of the major issues of our times. These include climate change, environmental management, the use of natural resources like minerals, wind and water, and the prediction of natural hazards such as earthquakes, floods, and volcanoes. They observe, measure and monitor; they calculate and predict; they hypothesise and maybe try again; they scrutinise the rocks beneath their feet and the air above their heads; they are both rigorous and creative.
Where do Geology and Geophysics Graduates Work?
Geology and Geophysics are multidisciplinary areas of study and their graduates are typically multiskilled.
