When you join the Bachelor of Science (Earth Science) you will learn how to provide information to society for solving geotechnical and environmental problems. Earth scientists are discovering hydrocarbon and mineral resources and establishing policy in resource management, environmental protection, public health, safety, and welfare.
What is it Like?
The study of Earth science is dedicated to the science and history of our planet. It’s a huge area to cover leading to fascinating and varied careers.
Massey’s Bachelor of Science (Earth Science) will take you on a journey of understanding the processes that moulded our planet, our landscapes, geological resources and soils.
Understand how the world works
You will develop an appreciation of the immensity of geological time. You’ll learn how to visualise Earth's structures in three dimensions and gain a capability to identify and understand the beginnings of the valued resources of our planet.
You’ll also learn how to predict where these resources may be found, and develop an eye for understanding the natural processes that shaped our environment.
World-leading in Earth and soil science
Massey University is one of the few places in the world with a research group that examines the combination of Earth and soil science.
We are at the forefront in environmental geochemistry and the evolving discipline of hydrology. This unique blend of research expertise underpins our teaching. We’ll take you beyond traditional geology and connect geology, soil science and environment, as well as explore metals and plants, mining and remediation and ground water hydrology. You’ll graduate with cutting edge skills and the ability to predict future changes in the Earth’s surface such as natural disasters, climate change and water contamination.
Some of the topics taught in advanced earth science courses include:
Massey University Earth science graduates are employed in various Crown Research Institutes, by regional councils (land and water resources), as secondary school teachers, in universities, as consultants, and varied positions in industry all around the world.
If you are interested in a research career, Massey’s BSc will allow you to choose from a wide range of specialist postgraduate programmes throughout New Zealand and overseas.
Massey University Earth science graduates are employed as scientists in the petroleum and petrochemical industries, in mining, resource management, hazards research, land rehabilitation, and engineering geology.
Research scientists have specialised in geochemistry, paleomagnetism (the Earth's past magnetic fluctuations), palynology (fossil pollen), volcanology, phytoremediation (using plants to remove pollutants from soils), pedology, soil pollution, and groundwater.
Students must have successful completion of a qualification equivalent to the New Zealand Year 13 - NCEA Level 3 University Entrance.
Intending students are recommended to take English, mathematics, chemistry, physics and geography up to NCEA Level 3 (or equivalent).
