Every aspect of modern life has a Geoscience connection, from building materials for the houses we live in to fuel for the cars we drive. Understanding climate change and considering options for the safe storage of nuclear waste are just two of today’s pressing problems that require a knowledge of Geoscience. It is truly a global science and includes, among many others, aspects of disciplines such as Biology, Geography, Environmental Science, Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, Resource Management and Government Policy.
Studying Geoscience will develop your understanding of how the process of long-term climate change has affected our Earth – shaping the world we live in and enabling us to anticipate future changes as this process accelerates. You will explore how current human activity is having an impact on our planet as well as how to manage this activity.
