A masters is the first level of graduate coursework and can be obtained after you receive a bachelor’s degree. Earning a masters usually requires two years of full-time study, which amounts to 36 to 54 semester credits.

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.

Distance learning is a method of delivering education to students who are not physically present on campus. Various studies have shown that distance learning programmes can be as efficient and effective as conventional classroom programmes sometimes even better!
