Bachelor of GeoScience
Bachelor of GeoScience
The Bachelor of GeoScience is a new and exciting degree with a strong professional focus, and on completion students will be well trained for the workforce, having a solid grounding in all aspects of the discipline.
Why Study the Bachelor of GeoScience at UNE?
UNE's collaboration with Newcastle has resulted in a flexible three year degree which allows students to undertake study as a full-time or part-time on-campus student, or a full-time or part-time distance education student. Most units are offered at UNE in on-campus or distance education mode, with a number offered by the University of Newcastle also in on-campus or distance education mode.
UNE has a long tradition of offering innovative and relevant programs in geology and geoscience and our collaboration with the University of Newcastle has strengthened these offerings.
In addition, research is a critical adjunct to teaching at UNE and geological research relates directly to the teaching of geology and geoscience with research being carried out in areas such as environmental geochemistry of degraded areas, palaeontology and stratigraphy, original and characteristics of ore deposits, development of the earth's crust and fluvial and coastal environments.
UNE is justifiably proud of its five-star rating for graduate experience by the Good Universities Guide.

Geoscience graduates are in high demand and have excellent employment prospects. In recent years, Australia has suffered a shortage of geoscientists and their salaries on graduation are near the top of those for science, engineering and medical graduates. Graduates can expect to be employed in diverse locations within Australia, but there are opportunities worldwide. On completion of your degree you can expect employment in: mineral exploration and mining; energy resources; environmental consultancies; scientific agencies (e.g. CSIRO); government agencies (local, state and federal); schools and universities.
