As a Master of Earth Sciences (Advanced) student, you’ll delve into the complex systems and processes that shape our planet, at Australia’s leading academic research institution for Earth Sciences. You’ll study courses from different Earth Science disciplines and undertake training in research methods, computational geosciences, data sciences and analytical techniques, before being provided with expert supervision for a research project. There is a broad range of research topics for you to choose from, including biogeochemistry, experimental petrology, geobiology, geochemistry, geochronology, geology, geophysics, ocean and climate change and planetary sciences.


    A Master of Earth Sciences (Advanced) gives you the opportunity to gain a wide range of knowledge and skills that are relevant for employment in academia, industry, government agencies and education. It is an excellent qualification for pursuing a career at geosciences agencies or within mineral & hydrocarbon exploration, natural resource management, environmental monitoring, data sciences and the energy sector. The program is also an ideal pathway to a PhD in Australia or at leading institutes around the world.
