Overview What happens during an earthquake? What’s going on inside an erupting volcano? How does a meteorite impact affect the Earth? Why do flash floods happen and can we stop them? You’ll follow a programme that takes a very modern approach to Earth science – one that links geology with geography, human society and a multitude of surface and environmental processes. You’ll get out in the field or into the lab to use the principles of geology and physical geography to explore areas such as fossil fuels, geochemistry, earthquakes, volcanoes, geomorphology and hydrogeology. You’ll also explore the relationships between the dynamic Earth and other disciplines in Geography and across the Environmental Sciences – an opportunity not usually available in traditional Geology departments. About This Course Studying Geology with Geography will help you understand the solid Earth and the societal consequences of its processes – such as volcanoes, earthquakes and floods. You’ll explore the interaction of human society and the Earth using geology, geography, social science and the core sciences, with the opportunity to focus on areas that most interest you. You’ll gain an important foundation in research skills, biodiversity and sustainability in your first year, before specialising in your second and third years. Take your pick from a wide range of modules covering topics such as geomorphology, hydrology, fossil fuels and geophysics. Our vast research expertise means we provide world-class teaching, and our international reputation ensures UEA graduates are highly sought after. As a Geology with Geography graduate you’ll be in great demand within the industry. Graduates of UEA’s School of Environmental Sciences are held in high esteem in the wider geosciences community for the high levels of laboratory, field and transferable skills you acquire during the course. You’ll also benefit from a flexible and adaptable degree programme, where conventional subject boundaries are dissolved to give you an integrated learning experience.
