The Keele Geology degree is broad-based and examines the Earth, its structure, formation, composition, history, processes, hazards and materials. It looks at rocks, minerals and fossils and geological processes. Beyond that, a range of optional modules allow you to tailor your degree towards your individual interests and/or career aspirations. Our courses are strongly aligned to the role of geoscience in the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. Our degrees are accredited by the Geological Society* and are strongly applied and vocationally oriented.The degree enables students to develop a range of transferable skills, including communication, decision-making, problem solving skills, and the ability to research, evaluate and synthesise information from diverse sources. You will develop subject-specific skills like the ability to manipulate analyse and present geospatial data using industry standard GIS and drawing software. You can also extend your studies to a fourth year to obtain an undergraduate integrated master's qualification, "MGeol". Geology at Keele is taught by experienced, research-active and enthusiastic staff who operate an “open door” policy which means you can just come and discuss issues any time we are in our office.
