Geology is a branch of Earth Science concerned with the physical structure and substance of the Earth, its evolution, and the Earth processes (for example earthquakes, floods, and volcanic eruptions). This course introduces students to the key ideas and methods of Geology through timed set exercises (20% each) exploring four themes: planet earth and its history; earth processes and geohazards, the geology of Scotland; and evolution of life, climates and environments. As well as gaining knowledge of the fundamentals of Geology, you will gain skills useful in studying within the physical sciences at university Level 1.
