Geology VS Geography?Watch this thread
I'm studying geology because I like something with a scientific basis and a good practical side to it as well. I'm very interested in the Earth, it's structure and all of the processes acting on it. I have to admit, I'm rather fond of rocks and minerals too.
If you want to look at rocks and like something very scientific, pick geology. If you are a less scientific person, and have an interest in surface processes and the interacts with people then geography may suit you more.
Geology leads more into certain jobs (and is also closely related to engineering), although like most degrees it can also be used to get onto a lot of graduate schemes that accept any degree.
As I don't study geography, I don't know exactly what it is like, but I'm someone else can. If you can't make your mind up, you could always go for a dual honours course. It's a common dual honours combination and I'm sure you will find loads of universities offering it.
In all honesty, what interests me depends on my mood on the day haha. Which at the moment isn't very good when trying to choose. But I appreciate your comment, I do see myself as more scientific, so maybe Geology is for me
Thank you for the advice though
geology can lead you to some very very profitable jobs such as working in the oil industry aswell ?
Hi everyone, I have to choose soon which course I want to do at uni....problem is, I really can't decide whether I should do Geology or Geography. I was just wondering what you thought the pro's and con's were of either subject and why you want to do that course at uni? Thanks guys
i think geology is harder
i do geography at uob and i enjoy the course and it is interesting but would say geology could get you jobs in oil fields ect
though i think geology can be very boring
