Study with us
Geology is the study of the materials that make up the Earth, whereas geophysics studies the inaccessible Earth using physical measurements. Both areas and techniques can be applied to other celestial bodies, like the Moon or Mars.
In the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, we have an exciting range of coursework study options across both undergraduate and postgraduate levels as well as our higher degree research offerings. We take a highly practical approach to learning and teaching - ensuring that all students gain hands-on practical knowledge to complement the theoretical concepts taught in our courses.
At Macquarie University, you’ll receive the professional training you need to enter the workforce with a clear advantage when you graduate.
