Earth Science

Program Information

School:University of Calgary
Faculty:Faculty of Arts
Degree:Bachelor; Co-op; Honours
Field of Study:Geology/Earth Science, General
Description:Earth scientists study the materials that make up the Earth, and the natural and human processes that shape its landscape. You will work across four disciplines of geology, geophysics, geography, and archaeology, developing your understanding of how natural systems affect human culture—and are influenced by it. The multidisciplinary scope of an earth science education may point to employment in the local oil-and-gas sector, but also creates opportunities for work in international development, particularly in natural resources development, and dealing with the associated socio-economic issues.

The Co-op program allows you to alternate in-school learning with 12 to 16 months of full-time paid work experience.
