Geology is the scientific study of the physical structure and composition of the Earth, and the tectonic processes that shape our planet. Geologists play a critical role in the discovery, sustainable extraction and management of Earth’s resources. The Bachelor of Science major in Geology combines a range of skills involving fieldwork, laboratory techniques and problem-solving skills to address key questions relating to our planet. These range from mapping the Earth from space, to monitoring natural hazards, to finding critical metals required for high-tech industry and renewable energy storage. This degree will provide numerous potential career pathways as exploration and resource geologists in mining and energy industries, geohazard mitigation, in environmental remediation (e.g. waste management, water), geotechnical engineering, government, and cutting-edge research in universities.
