In Leicester we offer a range of fully accredited geoscience degrees, with the single-subject Geology degree offering most flexibility in module choice. Or, choose from a more specialist degree in Geology with Palaeontology, Geology with Geophysics, or Applied and Environmental Geology. You can choose between a three-year BSc degree, or four-year MGeol which includes a major research project on a topic of your choice. We also offer a BSc in Physical Geography and Geology, delivered by colleagues from across our School of Geography, Geology and the Environment.
