Bachelor of Science (major in Geology)

The University of Melbourne

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00116K

This major integrates knowledge from a range of disciplines from field-based studies to more theoretical aspects of rocks, minerals and their behaviour during Earth processes. You will complete a sequence of specialist subjects as well as integrated subjects that ask you to solve questions about how the Earth works, including the competing problems of resource consumption (air, water, minerals, energy) and protecting the environment. Fieldwork is an essential component of this major. You will gain experience for the workplace by participating in hands-on project work that requires careful time management and the clear communication of results.

Standard entry requirements

You’ll complete this major as part of the Bachelor of Science. In your first and second years you will complete subjects that are prerequisites for your major, including earth sciences and chemistry subjects. In your third year, you will complete 50 points (four subjects) of deep and specialised study in geology. This is a very flexible major: you’ll be able to select your major subjects from a large range.
