Description:

Earth Scientists ask questions such as: Are environmental issues caused by natural systems or human society? How do human processes impact the natural world? Can a multidisciplinary approach to studying the Earth solve climate problems?



Earth Science is the study of the materials that make up the Earth and the natural and human processes that shape the landscape. During the course of your studies, much of your learning will occur in class, field study and during labs. You’ll work across four disciplines of geology, geophysics, geography and archaeology to develop your understanding of how natural systems affect human culture – and are influenced by it.
