Course summary

The MGeol Geology programme provides a detailed understanding of the earth, its history, processes and resources, and fundamental training for students interested in a career as a professional geoscientist. The programme provides the research skills and experience for students wishing to undertake PhD research. The mixture of pure and applied earth science and engineering modules, and associated transferable skills, is appropriate for subsequent employment in many sectors or study towards a postgraduate degree (MSc/PhD). Emphasis is placed on practical training in field-based skills, including geological mapping (surface and underground), core logging and surveying. Residential field courses take place in the UK and abroad, along with one-day courses based on Cornwall’s spectacular geology and its extractive industry and associated environmental case studies. The programme is taught by the University’s Camborne School of Mines (CSM), which has an exceptional international and national reputation for providing geoscientists for industry. CSM has research strengths in pure and applied geology (ore deposits/critical metals, environmental mineralogy, igneous petrology, geostatistics and tectonics/structural geology) and geotechnical engineering (rock mass modelling).
