Overview

If you're fascinated by the natural and man-made hazards that affect our planet and want to understand the physical processes that generate natural hazards, then the MSc Geological and Environmental Hazards degree course will take your understanding of the challenges ahead to the next level.

This course focuses on the physical processes that generate natural hazards through an advanced understanding of geological processes, mechanical behaviour of geological materials, field recognition and mapping of hazards, catastrophe modelling, quantitative hazard modelling and risk assessment techniques.

You'll be trained by experts in hazard identification, terrain evaluation, hazard modeling and risk assessment techniques. You'll also learn to manage the impact of floods, earthquakes, landslides, volcanoes, coastal erosion and climate change. You'll understand how to monitor, warn against and help control the consequences of natural hazards.

And when you graduate, you'll have the vocational skills you need to work in the specialist hazard field – making you an attractive candidate for government agencies and specialist insurance, flood risk and geoscience companies.

Accredited by:

Our MSc Geological and Environmental Hazards degree course is accredited by the Geological Society of London. It provides advanced professional and scientific training, and an accelerated route for you to attain Chartered Status, such as Chartered Geologist (CGeol) or Chartered Scientist (CSci) when you graduate.

What you'll experience

On this course, you'll:

Learn from experts with extensive industrial and consultancy experience and strong research portfolios in natural hazards.
Become skilled in the application of specialist techniques including numerical hazard modeling and simulation, catastrophe modeling, field reconnaissance and geomorphological mapping, geotechnical testing, spatial analysis and remote sensing.
Learn about physical processes that affect and control natural hazards, including volcanology and earthquakes, flooding and hydrological hazards, coastal erosion, slope instability and landslides.
Take part in research-based field trips, both locally and overseas, where you will receive specialist field training in hazard identification, mapping and monitoring.
Complete your own independent research project to academic or industrial standards with opportunities to work with industrial partners on a joint project.

Careers and opportunities

When you graduate, you'll have the vocational skills you need for a career in this specialist environmental field, as well as transferable skills including report writing, working to deadlines, team-working, presentation and communication skills. You'll be qualified to pursue a career in the insurance industry, government agencies or specialist geoscience companies.

What can you do with a Geological and Environmental Hazards degree?

Opportunities exist in the following fields:

  • Aid organisations
  • Environmental consultants
  • Marine and offshore consultants
  • Flood risk consultants
  • GIS and remote sensing consultants
  • Engineering geology companies
  • Re-insurance and insurance sectors
