Course content

Our MSc Advanced Applied Field Geoscience is the most fieldwork intensive MSc in the UK. This is a highly vocational MSc course that will give you with the knowledge, skills, competence and confidence to work in a wide range of practical geoscience careers, from engineering geology and mining to quarrying, petroleum geoscience and research.

Rather than focusing on an individual geoscience career path, we focus on providing a thorough training in a number of geoscience skills including digital data capture and visualisation, analytical methods and applied field geology.

Fieldwork includes trips to Utah (USA), Finland, Azores, Spain and the UK along with work close to our campus in South Wales.
