Masters Degrees in Geology

We have 185 Masters Degrees in Geology

Masters degrees in Geology study the physical structure of the Earth, both above and below its surface. This can involve exploring ancient rock formations, investigating valuable resources or understanding the causes of earthquakes or volcanic eruptions.

Geology is a far more diverse discipline than it might appear. You could investigate the remains of fossilised dinosaurs with a Palaeontology degree, or examine the natural disasters that (probably) caused their extinction with a course in Seismology or Vulcanology. Sadly, a Geology Masters won’t help you build your own Jurassic Park.

Programmes can be taught or research based, with MSc, MRes and MPhil courses available.

Why study a Masters degree in Geology?

As well as associated academic research careers, a Masters in Geology can lead to a range of professional and commercial jobs. Your specialist skills and knowledge will make you an attractive candidate for positions in the oil and gas mining industries, or in organisations researching the effects of mineral resource exploitation and alternative methods of extraction.

Geology postgraduates can also end up working for disaster relief and prevention charities, or even consulting on legal and insurance cases involving natural hazards.
