Geoscience is the study of our dynamic planet and aims to understand the origin and evolution of Earth, its ancient environments and climates, natural hazards and the formation of resources including petroleum, mineral deposits and groundwater. Knowledge of past and present earth processes is fundamental for predicting future changes in environments and climate as well as contributing to the management of vital resources. This course develops your abilities to gather and interpret geological information for a wide range of applications. With the majority of Australia’s mineral and petroleum resources found in Western Australia, UWA is in a prime location for you to strengthen your geoscientific knowledge and skills in gathering and interpreting geological information for a wide range of applications. The structure and content of this degree lets you choose coursework units across a range of geoscience subdisciplines depending on your career aspirations, including fieldwork in Australia and overseas, as well as the possibility of undertaking a research project working with internationally recognised Earth Science staff.
