Explore the different processes that drive the global Earth system, on land, in the ocean, in the crust and in the atmosphere. You’ll combine geology, geography and oceanography, and develop a wide range of practical and transferable skills.
Our interdisciplinary degree will open up exciting career options in a range of fields. As an environmental geoscientist you’ll be able to assess the impact of human activity on the planet and society and work to mitigate this impact and find solutions for our future.
With this degree you’ll discover the fundamental science that underpins the global Earth system. You’ll study different disciplines and gain an extensive knowledge of Earth, marine and environmental sciences. You can choose to study a Geoscience or Marine pathway through this programme.
The human impact on the environment and its natural resources is an important focus for the course. In your third year you can specialise in either marine or terrestrial aspects of the Earth system.
You’ll develop a variety of practical and professional skills relating to:
- data collection in the field and laboratory
- data interpretation and digital skills
- environmental assessment and management
In Year 3 your research project will give you the chance to combine knowledge and practice working in a world-class research environment.
You’ll study at the National Oceanography Centre Southampton (NOCS). It is one of the world’s largest centres devoted to research, teaching and technology development in ocean and Earth science. Here you’ll have the unique opportunity to work on research projects with NOCS scientists and have access to specialist facilities.
