Program description

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

This popular combination focuses on the physical structure of the Earth, the processes that shape its surface and interior, and the importance
of these to human activity.

The course includes a balance of physical geography and geology topics,
as well as material from complementary disciplines such as geophysics,
meteorology, geomorphology, and environmental science. You will learn
about the history of the Earth, its past and present environments, and
the planet’s resources and hazards. We look at the Earth as a global
system, including the causes and effects of global environmental
change. There is strong emphasis on developing both laboratory and
fieldwork skills, with field courses in the UK as well as overseas (current
students have visited Spain and Iceland).

Keele enjoys high rates of graduate employment, where in 2016, were recognised nationally as 1st for employability in the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey. As a graduate from this course you will have a wide range of skills
that are currently in demand and, given current concerns around
environmental change and natural resources, are likely to be in demand
for a considerable time to come. You might choose to work in a subject
specific role in geological or environmental consultancy, in planning,
for a mining company, or in the oil and gas industry. Besides having
strong subject specific skills, you will be an articulate communicator and
confident problem solver, and these will be valuable attributes in a wide
range of different careers.
