This two year Masters of Geoscience course provides advanced technical and professional training for those wishing to upgrade their geology or geophysics qualifications or enter a new branch of geoscience to enhance their career prospects. Students can select either a major in Exploration and Mining Geology or Geophysics.
What you'll learn

- can apply their knowledge and understanding, and problem-solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to geoscience.
- can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously.
- can integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgements with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgements.
- comprehend that geoscience is an international discipline with varying perspectives as demonstrated in the diversity of opinion identified while undertaking this course.
- have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study and practice in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.
