About Geology at University of South Wales

Geology is the study of the world beneath your feet - it's the course to choose if you want to really understand how the planet, the landscape and life have changed over billions of years.

Geology is concerned with the Earth's origin, structure, composition and history, as well as the physical, chemical and biological processes that have formed it. By graduation, you'll understand relevant scientific principles and how to apply them to a huge range of geological questions and problems.

You'll explore diverse topics, including how to describe, analyse and interpret rocks, how volcanoes are formed, how ice ages originate, how mountains form, how to search for oil and gas, and what Britain was like 500 million years ago. Petroleum Experts Ltd (Petex) has also donated 10 licences of the MOVE software suite, the commercial equivalent of which is £1,341,961.89 to support our teaching and learning.

Our Geology course emphasises applied geology, so you will learn vital skills for the workplace, including geographical information systems (GIS), geological mapping, and analysis of geological materials. We pride ourselves on o?ering some of the most extensive fieldwork of any UK university geology course, at locations in the UK and overseas, which currently include Azores and Spain.
