  • Objectives
    The objective of the Master of Earth Science is to provide advanced training in three streams of the Earth Sciences to candidates from Australia and overseas. On completion of their studies, students will have been given opportunities to:

    * increase their knowledge and understanding of the relevant discipline and awareness of current developments and issues relating to this discipline;
    * develop independent and critical thinking;
    * improve oral and written communication skills;
    * acquire advanced research skills and techniques (for example, laboratory techniques and data collection and analysis);
    * engage in independent research, under appropriate supervision;
    * present their research findings in documented scholarly form; and
    * interact with many Australian and overseas students studying the same subjects.
  • Academic title
    Master of Earth Science
  • Course description
    Three streams are available in the coursework component of the program, based on the combination of subjects selected as indicated below:

    Stream 1: Geodynamics & Petroleum
