Geology is a course for those with an insatiable curiosity of the world around them, and for those who love the great outdoors. Studying geology at UWA has been a truly rewarding experience. The degree is taught by passionate lecturers in an approach that promotes independence, both in the classroom and the field – a skill that is valued in both industry and research.
The field trips put theory into practice and are the most exciting parts of each year. By spending time in some of the most geologically fascinating parts of the State, the field work contributes considerably to the value of the course. You make lasting friendships in the field, and the sense of camaraderie in Geology is second to none.
I completed my undergraduate Geology studies with a second major in Environmental Science. Other complementary majors may include Physics, Chemistry or Economics.
Studying Geology at UWA has positioned me for a graduate role in mining with BHP Billiton, and offers many opportunities to further my prospects with postgraduate studies in exciting research projects. Geology is challenging, complex, and absolutely worth it.
