Why study Environmental Earth Science at JCU?
The Master of Environmental Earth Science is about understanding natural processes on the Earth’s surface.
JCU is a premier place to study Environmental Earth Science, particularly if you are interested in the Tropics. From our Townsville or Cairns campuses you will have easy access to the most diverse climates, landscapes and land uses in Australia, including: rugged mountains covered in rainforest, fertile agricultural regions, sparsely grazed vast savannah plains, huge rivers, and diverse coastlines.
You will enjoy the benefits of being taught by a team who are internationally acclaimed for research in ‘Physical Geography and Environmental Geoscience’ and ‘Geology’, world class research facilities, and research partners from a range of industries and government agencies.
Environmental earth science (or geoscience) covers a range of topics including hydrology, sedimentology and geomorphology. You will develop skills in resource and environmental impact assessment, mine site rehabilitation, and soil and water science.
