The BSc in Geology (Hons) at University of St Andrews provides training in the interaction of the sediments, minerals, and rocks with the hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere, integrating chemistry, physics, and biology to build a deep understanding of the Geosciences.
Applied industrial training will introduce you to the skills and knowledge required by the oil and gas and mining industries, and research projects will allow you to undertake independent field mapping, supported by rock and mineral analysis.
Students interested in this course may also be interested in the Earth Sciences Integrated Masters course, which allows you to graduate with a Master of Geology.
The School is proactive in developing career opportunities, and career activities are provided for all students from first year onwards. There is a wide variety of career options for Geology graduates in the energy, natural resources, and environmental sectors. For some graduates, it is a stepping stone to pursuing postgraduate education and research.
Several Honours-level modules feature lectures and laboratories run by industry professionals, providing hands-on experience with industrial problem solving. In addition, the BSc in Geology is accredited by the Geological Society of London, which provides a faster track to chartered success.
