School:McGill University
Faculty:Faculty of Science
Degree:Bachelor
Field of Study:Geology/Earth Science, General
Planetary Astronomy and Science
Description:Earth and Planetary Sciences is a broad discipline that applies the principles of physics, chemistry, mathematics and biology to the study of planetary processes and environments in order to understand how planets like the Earth work; in the past, the present, and the future. Graduates enjoy a diverse range of career opportunities, including the new and expanding fields of environmental management, toxic and radioactive waste disposal, oceanography, and the prediction and monitoring of natural hazards. There also remains a strong demand for geologists and geophysicists in their traditional roles searching for mineral, energy and water resources. This diversity will expand in the future to include mineral exploration and exploitation of the sea floor and neighbouring terrestrial planets.
