The Earth is billions of years old. What is in store for its future? Through geology, you can study our planet's fascinating history in order to predict and protect its future. This degree will enable you to learn about how the Earth was formed, how it has changed over time, and how the processes that shape our planet affect our life on it. We can ask important questions in the earth sciences such as:
- Why is our planet able to sustain life?
- How does the Earth's interior work, and how do these processes affect the surface?
- Can we sustainably manage the Earth's resources?
- Can we predict and protect against the effects of global climate change?
- Can natural hazards such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions be understood, saving lives?
