We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Geoscience offer an interdisciplinary approach to Earth Science, including a combination of Geology, Geochemistry, Geophysics and Geodesy. They analyse a means to generating and disseminating information about past, present and future processes.
Related subjects include Sustainable Geoscience, Petroleum Geoscience, and Mineral Geoscience. Entry requirements normally include a relevant undergraduate degree such as Environmental Science.
Geoscience explores the means through which we can address the day-to-day needs of society on local, regional, national and international scales.
This may include exploring methods to obtain resources sustainably. For example, you might wish to examine the environmental impacts of Petroleum Geoscience, reducing emissions through renewable energy, or develop practices in mining and minerals excavation.
You can also specialise in areas such as Geodiversity and Geoheritage, which explore issues such as maintaining cultural heritage including rock formations, and sustaining tourism at significant historical sites. This may also link to developing economic livelihoods through strategic urban planning and retail marketing.
Other specialisations could lead to careers in disaster management and humanitarian aid, environmental assessment and policy regulation, or private consultancy.
