Program description

This innovative degree provides the opportunity to study a geology degree that incorporates the fundamental core principals of geology coupled with teaching of modern GIS/geospatial geology specific maps and mapping techniques. We capitalise on our location within the New England Orogen that enables us to undertake fieldwork often. The New England Orogen is a great natural laboratory and we have a diverse array of spectacular geology all easily accessible in our 'backyard'. This course includes topics such as field geology, resource geology and environmental issues, optical mineralogy and igneous petrology, ore deposit geology, exploration and environmental geochemistry, structural and metamorphic geology, field mapping and sedimentology, palaeontology and stratigraphy, applied geophysics, among others.

Graduates with an above average GPA of 5.5 or better are encouraged to apply to undertake Honours in Geology. Bachelor of Science with Honours graduates who achieve the appropriate grades are eligible to apply to enrol for a research Master degree or the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).

I would like to know more about this course.
