Geology is the study of planet Earth and space

Geologists study rocks, minerals, landforms, climates and biota, and the processes that affect them

As one of New Zealand's leading geoscience departments, Otago offers an active postgraduate programme and practical undergraduate foundation. Graduates are in high demand as society shifts to a low-carbon future.

The need for Earth scientists who understand our ancient biota, changing climate, natural hazards and mineral resources continues to increase.

Rewarding careers include environmental protection and sustainability, natural hazard assessment, renewable energy, engineering and construction.
