University of the West Indies - Bachelor of Science in Geology- (Major and Minor Offered)


The geology major seeks to train graduate students with theoretical knowledge, practical experience, and the specific and transferrable skills and have the necessary abilities to assess, analyse and solve the current and future geological needs of the Caribbean region. The programme will equip graduates with the necessary cognitive skills to become employed in the geosciences or to enter into a higher degree programme to develop more advanced skills.

The Geology programme seeks to provide students with both discipline specific skills (such as geological data acquisition, interpretation, and analysis) as well as transferable skills (such as research and publication ethics, production and delivery of multimedia presentations, and report writing). The programme is usually 3 years unless the student begins at the preliminary level.
