BSc Earth Science at the University of Hull
At the University of Hull, we offer BSc Earth Science, plus the options to add a study abroad year and to do a Foundation Year before the degree if required.
Earth Science at Hull is about understanding how the Earth works, the forces that shape it, what that means for life on Earth, and how we as humans can use its resources in a sustainable way. Earth Scientists are key to solving the big problems facing the world.
Why study Earth Science at Hull:
- You will learn to solve global challenges by interrogating the big questions facing us in the 21st Century – from sustainability and global resources to climate change and geohazards.
- Our degree will take you places – after learning the theory on campus, you will go and apply it yourself in our fantastic field trip destinations that have recently included the Isle of Skye, Almeria in Spain and Cyprus.
- We have redesigned our teaching to focus on training geoscientists with an interest in the future sustainability of our planet and are the first UK Earth Science programme to launch a Sustainability Award.
