The Education Program in Earth and Marine Sciences is a component of the Research School of Earth Sciences (RSES), which is one of the top-ranked Earth Science institutes in the world.

Earth Science is a wide and interdisciplinary field of science that includes areas such as geochemistry, geophysics, oceanography, as well as emerging disciplines of research such as biogeochemistry, high-pressure physics and paleoclimatology.

The Program offers undergraduate study for a diverse range of interests, preparing students for careers in a range of scientific fields including resources companies in both the mining and petroleum industries, environmental agencies in government and private sector, geoscience and marine science consulting companies and science education fields.

An undergraduate degree in Earth and Marine Sciences also provides a pathway to higher degree research at Australian or overseas universities.
