¿Qué aprenderé?

Geophysics is the application of physical principles to the study of the structure and dynamics of the Earth and increasingly other planets. Geophysics has many practical applications and forms an essential part of the economic exploitation of hydrocarbon and mineral resources. Geophysicists are also involved with assessing and mitigating natural hazards such as earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis.The Geophysics with Geology degree shows progression from the first year through to the third year. In the first year, you share the compulsory modules with the other degree courses, but it also includes additional compulsory modules which specialise in Mathematics and Physics. In the second and third years, you deal with material that is specialist, numerically based and at the cutting-edge of geophysical research.Graduates from this degree have secured employment across the geoscience sector, within the mineral exploration and extraction industries, in petroleum exploration companies, and with environmental and hydro-geological industries. The advanced quantitative skills developed during this course can provide a strong base for securing employment outside geoscience, for example, in finance, insurance and banking.**Year 1 Compulsory modules:**Earth MaterialsUnderstanding Earth SciencesField Studies Further Mathematics for GeoscientistsGeoinformatics.**Year 2 Compulsory modules:**Fieldwork (Geophysical)Geophysical Methods for GeoscientistsGeophysical Data ApplicationsStructural Geology and Tectonics.**Year 3 Compulsory modules:**DissertationAdvanced GeophysicsEarth Structure and Dynamics.We review course structures and core content (in light of e.g. external and student feedback) every year, and will publish finalised core requirements for 2020 entry from September 2019.For more information on this course, including a list of all optional modules, please see our website.
