About Bachelor of Geoscience at Federation University Australia

CRICOS 088139J

You'll explore our planet through both theory and field experience, use mapping, technology and historical data to build conceptual models. You will learn how these models can help you estimate where mineral, water and other natural resources are located beneath the earth's surface. We will also teach you how to extract these resources in a sustainable way. You will also gain experience in identifying and mitigating natural hazards.

The degree is highly interactive and teaches you the specialised skills you need to work in this field. You can choose to specialise in exploration/mine geoscience or environmental geoscience. Your field skills will be honed at world renowned sites in Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia.

This course provides specialist training for those who wish to pursue professional careers in mineral and oil exploration, extractive industries, environmental science, or hydrogeology.

Graduates in geology from Federation University Australia are eligible for membership of a number of professional societies, including the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, and the Australian Institute of Geosciences. Membership of either professional body carries accreditation with the Australian Stock Exchange, a requirement for some practising geologists in order to authorise the release of company reports.
