Geology is a detective story where you get to unravel how the planet works and gain an insight into its history and possible futures.
Over the two-year course you will learn how to identify and interpret minerals, rocks, fossils and geological structures; how rocks form and deform through the study of plate tectonics; and how to interpret past climates using evidence. You will also study how natural resources form and how we exploit them, as well as various geo-hazards and how we can mitigate them.
Many students study geology at university, leading to careers as geoscientists, who are in demand to search for natural energy and mineral resources and study global climate change.
