Geology with Physical Geography at Edge Hill University - UCAS

Course summary

Our Geology with Physical Geography degree will introduce you to Earth sciences and geology. Join us on adventures across the UK and abroad to complete fieldwork and carry out science in our campus labs. Over millions of years geological processes, structures and materials have shaped and influenced the planet we live on. This degree will guide and instruct those who are passionate about the Earth and its geology. You’ll take part in national and international fieldwork to learn about hard and soft rock geology, before the focus shifts to applied geology during the last year of the degree. With a geological emphasis, you’ll also explore physical geography topics like landscape dynamics, climate and environmental change, and natural hazards. Fieldwork destinations across Europe will provide an essential practical dimension to your degree. Previous locations have included Edinburgh, Tenerife and the Scottish Highlands. You can also tailor your degree to your interests, with the opportunity to select subject-specific and complementary modules. After three years of study, you’ll have honed many transferable skills useful for working in public and private sector organisations. You might consider roles in conservation, geological exploration, environmental management or environmental education. To help you plan for life after Edge Hill, our tailored careers and employability activities can help you identify and make your next move.
