In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.
A Master of Science in Geology teaches students a variety of subjects, such as geological science, biology, physics, chemistry or ecology. This knowledge is necessary to understand the main focus of the degree, which is the understanding of the Earth’s composition, evolution, origins and processes.
Students who complete a part of their degree in Asia are growing in numbers. Currently, the second and the third biggest economies are in Asia. Without limitation, students have described their time in Asia as the best experience of their lives. Today, three of the four most populated countries of the world are in Asia: China, India, and Indonesia.

Geology is a knowledge system that studies material compositions, internal structure, and external features of earth, mutual interactions between earth layers and the history of the evolution of earth. [+]
Geology is a knowledge system that studies material compositions, internal structure, and external features of the earth, mutual interactions between earth layers and the history of the evolution of the earth. The first-level discipline of Geology complies of five second-level disciplines of Mineralogy-Petrology-Gitology, Geochemistry, Structural Geology, Palaeontology & Stratigraphy and Quaternary Geology. The researches of our Geological disciplines mainly characterized in that of the structure and property of a basin, the depositional systems and sedimentary effects, the physical, chemical or biological effects which occurred inside the sedimentary basin, and how these geological effects control the deposition and formation of fossil fuels. During 1950s, with the help of experts from the Soviet Union, our geological department began to recruit graduate students, and in early 1980s, authorized by the Chinese government, ours became one of the first departments to offer master degrees, and later to establish doctoral programs in Mineralogy, Petrology and Gitology in 1993, in Geochemistry in 2003, in Structural Geology in 2005. In 2003, approved by the National Ministry of Personnel, our department established the Post-doctoral Research Station in Geology. In 2006, we were authorized to offer doctor degree in Geology discipline.... [-]
Geological Resources and Geological Engineering is the discipline of geological resources exploration, evaluation, development, and utilization. The discipline involves two major areas of resources and the environment which are closely related to sustainable social and economic development. [+]
Geological Resources and Geological Engineering is the discipline of geological resources exploration, evaluation, development and utilization. The discipline involves two major areas of resources and the environment which are closely related to sustainable social and economic development. The development of geological resources and geological engineering not only provides the most basic material conditions for the development of the social productive forces but the work to be done in advance in industrial and agricultural construction. Thus, the discipline is closely related to social development and human survival and it takes a very important position in national economic construction. It is a subject full of development potential.... [-]
