Course Summary:
Studying Geology with Geography will help you understand the solid Earth and the societal consequences of its processes – such as volcanoes, earthquakes and floods. You’ll explore the interaction of human society and the Earth using geology, geography, social science and the core sciences, with the opportunity to focus on areas that most interest you. You’ll gain an important foundation in research skills, biodiversity and sustainability in your first year, before specialising in your second and third years. Take your pick from a wide range of modules covering topics such as geomorphology, hydrology, fossil fuels and geophysics. Our vast research expertise means we provide world-class teaching, and our international reputation ensures UEA graduates are highly sought after. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework we were ranked first in the UK for the impact of our world-leading research in Earth Systems and Environmental Sciences (Times Higher REF2014 Analysis), demonstrating the crucial role we play in influencing both the scientific community and environmental policy makers. As a Geology with Geography graduate you’ll be in great demand within the industry. Graduates of UEA’s School of Environmental Sciences are held in high esteem in the wider geosciences community for the high levels of laboratory, field and transferable skills you acquire during the course. You’ll also benefit from a flexible and adaptable degree programme, where conventional subject boundaries are dissolved to give you an integrated learning experience. **Course structure** This three-year course covers a broad range of topics, moving from a first year that provides you with an essential foundation, through to flexible second and third years. **Year 1:** In your first year you’ll build a strong foundation of knowledge through compulsory modules in Understanding the Dynamic Planet, Physical and Chemical processes in the Earth system, and Research and Field Skills. You’re likely to come across new subjects – sparking interests that may shape your studies over the next two years. **Year 2:** In your second year you’ll take modules on Earth science skills, global tectonics and sedimentology. Alongside these you’ll have the freedom to tailor your course with optional subjects from a wide range of specialist modules – including subjects such as geomorphology, geophysics and hydrogeology. **Year 3:** In your third year you’ll spend a substantial amount of time on your Independent Project, giving you the chance to investigate an area of interest in depth and put everything you’ve learnt throughout your degree into practice. You will also have the opportunity to select from a range of optional modules – including topics covering geophysical hazards, paleoclimatology and an overseas geosciences field course. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change. You should always confirm the details on the provider's website: **www.uea.ac.uk**
Modules:
Our degree covers a wide range of topics from fossil fuels to volcanoes. In Year 1, you will be introduced to a range of compulsory topics which will provide the foundation to your studies. These modules include Understanding the Dynamic Planet, Global Environmental Challenges and Research and Field Skills. As your studies progress, you will study environmental relationships with other science disciplines - an opportunity which is not usually available in traditional Earth science departments. In Years 2 and 3, you will study a combination of compulsory and optional modules including Earth Science Skills, Soil Process and Environmental Issues, Earth and Life and Fossil Fuels.

UEA has a great atmosphere which makes both studying and socialising easy. The facilities on campus range from the library to the bar and from shops to accommodation which means that it is possible to live on campus without venturing away but at the same time the city of Norwich is a lovely place to explore. The university had the largest natural environment in the UK which includes a lake and woodlands which are relaxing to explore.

    The course itself has been so interesting that I can't wait until the second year when the content looks even more fascinating. The environment is welcoming. All services you would ever need can be found around campus and their opening times are amazing - especially in a bind! The library is open really late and it's super quiet so it's the perfect place to study, and the range of books they stock is remarkable!

    The nightlife could be better in terms of more diverse music, but the lcr is enough for most people due to convenience. Lots of activities and sport to get into. Wish only I had time to do them all!
