Geology at a glance

Our Geology degrees provide comprehensive training for students aiming to become professional geoscientists.

Emphasis is placed on practical training in field-based skills, including geological mapping (surface and underground), core logging and surveying.

Residential field courses take place in the UK and abroad, along with one-day courses based on the outstanding local Cornish geology.

Our Geology programmes are taught by the University’s Camborne School of Mines (CSM), which has an exceptional international and national reputation for providing applied geoscientists for industry.

CSM has research strengths in geological and climatic changes through deep time, volcanology, economic geology, ore deposits, igneous processes and more.

Our programmes are accredited by The Geological Society which is advantageous should you wish to proceed to Chartered Geologist status after graduation.
