Earth sciences, Worth it?Watch this thread
I've done three years of Geology and I think at times it can be boring but the seismology parts are really interesting. Yeah, there are geophysics jobs round where I live so it's worth it. With any degree, if you like it enough then it's worth it.
I did my degree in geoscience. There are job opportunities in many areas; mining, hydrogeology, geophysics, contaminated land and oil and gas are probably the most obvious ones but you could also go into research and/or specialise in any discipline that interests you. e.g. seismology, volcanology, mineralogy, palaeontology etc. You can also use a degree in earth science as a base to get into other areas such as flood risk management (which is what I'm doing for a masters). If you're interested in earth sciences it's worth considering studying further
