Course content

MSc Geophysics is our latest addition to an already world class suite of geology and petroleum geology programmes.

Developed on the back of a recognised need for qualified Geophysicists within industry, this programme will be delivered by our School of Geosciences and will equip students with the skills for careers in the hydrocarbon, minerals exploration or associated service industries, or broader geophysics research.

This unique programme is designed to expose students to the theory and practice of modern geophysics, with an emphasis on cutting edge techniques for understanding the structure, dynamics and composition of the Earth from the near surface to the deep interior. The content is broad-based and integrative with a strong focus on the quantitative aspects of geophysical data analysis and interpretation.
