Senior Units of Study
The School of Geosciences' Senior units of study are designed to provide students opportunities to specialise in different areas according to interest and need. All Senior Units are worth six Credit Points and can be undertaken at a standard or advanced level.
Students intending to major in either Geography or Geology & Geophysics must enrol in a minimum of 24 Senior Credit Points. Additionally, they must meet the requirements particular to each discipline.
Students interested in majoring in Geography must include one or more of the following: GEOS3053/3953, GEOS3513/3913, GEOS3522/3922 or GEOG3521/3921.
Students interested in a Geology & Geophysics major are required to take two compulsory units (GEOS3101/3801 and the field studies unit GEOS3008/3908, as well as two of GEOS3102, GEOS3103, GEOS3104). These units provide students with a foundation training that prepares them for further study in an Honours or postgraduate coursework program as well as enabling them to enter the main professional fields of the discipline, eg. resource and energy exploration, engineering geology, and environmental geology.
The following table lists all available Senior Units of Study. In the table, the advanced Unit code follows the standard Unit code.
