¿Qué aprenderé?

Which part of our planet do you want to explore? Deep beneath the lithosphere, or out into the atmosphere?

Our research ranges from the solid Earth to the fluid Earth and the processes that operate at the interface of these regions.

You'll be able to narrow your focus through the Master of Science (Earth Sciences), choosing from either a Geology or Atmospheric Science stream and drilling down (or up) even further.

Customise the course to suit your interests

The course is designed with flexibility in mind. Choose your own path by selecting from a wide range of core and elective subjects.

Whichever subjects you choose, you’ll have access to the best academic expertise from across the region, thanks to our collaborations with other Australian universities.

Build your research skills

Your major focus in the course will be your research project, which you'll complete under the supervision of one of our academic experts.

When you finish the course, you’ll have a major research project to feature in your CV, and perhaps even a published journal article.

More than just technical know-how

You probably know that employers today are looking for more than just specialist technical skills. To round out your skill set, select from a range of high-level professional subjects, including scientific communication, modelling, programming, business and more.

If you’d like to gain even more real-world experience, you can choose to complete an internship in a science or technology-related workplace for course credit.

Career outcomes

Our graduates go on to work as geologists, geoscientists, energy specialists, environmental scientists and advisors, research scientists, geological surveyors, climatologists and weather forecasters.
