Studying Geology with Geography will help you understand the solid Earth and the societal consequences of its processes â such as volcanoes, earthquakes and floods. Youâll 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.
Youâll 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 youâll be in great demand within the industry. Graduates of UEAâs 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. Youâll also benefit from a flexible and adaptable degree programme, where conventional subject boundaries are dissolved to give you an integrated learning experience.
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.
In your first year youâll 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. Youâre likely to come across new subjects â sparking interests that may shape your studies over the next two years.
In your second year youâll take modules on Earth science skills, global tectonics and sedimentology. Alongside these youâll have the freedom to tailor your course with optional subjects from a wide range of specialist modules â including subjects such as geomorphology, geophysics and hydrogeology.
In your third year youâll 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 youâve learnt throughout your degree into practice. You will also have the opportunity to select from a range of optional modules â including topics covering geophysical hazards, paleoclimatology and an overseas geosciences field course.

Our Environmental Earth Sciences degree covers a wide range of topics from fossil fuels to volcanos. In Year 1, you will be introduced to a range of compulsory topics which will provide the foundation to your studies. Examples of 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 have a combination of compulsory and optional modules examples including, Earth Science Skills, Soil Process and Environmental Issues, Earth and Life and Fossil Fuels. In your final year, you will complete an independent research project which matches your interests. You will also get the chance to study your choice of advanced level modules such as Geophysical Hazards and Managing Natural Hazards.

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!
