These degrees in geology comprise: BSc Geology, MSci Geology, BSc Geology with
Foundation Year, BSc Geology with Marine Biology, BSc Geology with Physical
Geography, MSci Geology with Study Abroad, and MSci Ocean, Earth and Climate
At Ocean and Earth Science we firmly believe that geology is one of the most
exciting, dynamic and relevant sciences in the world today.
After all, geological investigations hold the key to many current global
challenges, including: understanding past climatic perturbation in order to
predict future climate change; developing ways to discover new natural
resources and exploit known ones responsibly; and understanding natural hazards
and mitigating them.
A degree in geology will enable you to study a wide spectrum of scientific
disciplines and acquire subject-specific and transferable skills that are much
sought after by employers. As you will know, the continued demand for raw
materials such as oil, gas and minerals ensures there will be a continued need
for graduate geologists for many years to come.
The excellent standard of teaching and facilities across all our degrees in
geology means that many of our students are able to become recognised as high
In 2012 Joe Emmings, who recently graduated with a degree in geology from
Southampton, was a finalist in the SET Awards, which recognise outstanding
students in science, engineering and technology.
Throughout his four year master of science degree in geology, Joe consistently
achieved first class marks. His final year independent research project
investigated how effectively organic carbon was buried in deep sea sediments
from offshore northwest Africa.
