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.
Explore what makes Science at Otago so special
It’s not just our people – the experts in their fields and passionate students – but also the places we teach and learn: Otago Harbour, Fiordland, Stewart Island, Antarctica and the Pacific that mean our students leave here with highly sought-after skills and experiences.
