Department of Earth Sciences
Explore Earth Science
Join us in our exploration of the Earth, its stories and our relationship with it.
A four-year BSc program in Geology or Geophysics prepares you to work as a geoscientist in the private and public sectors at home and abroad.
We are a small department that offers a friendly research culture with advanced instrumentation and facilities. Our research spans a broad range of activities from the nanoscale to whole Earth systems where graduate students can succeed scientifically and personally.
Geoscientists combine geology, chemistry, physics, biology, and mathematics to advance our knowledge of the processes that have shaped our dynamic Earth. We seek to better understand these processes in order to predict past, current and future natural changes and the human impacts on these changes. We invite you to discover the research conducted by our faculty and students.
