Ever wonder why volcanoes erupt? Or where the best diamond deposits are—and where new ones are going to be formed? Or maybe you're curious about why our climate is changing. The discipline of earth sciences play a crucial role in answering questions like these about today's complex world. Studying earth sciences gives you insights into the Earth's evolution, composition, processes, and future.
Field work is an important part of Dal’s Earth Sciences program. You'll explore the fascinating and diverse geology of Nova Scotia, or take part in an off-site computing camp. Taking Advanced Field School provides you with opportunities for in-depth study abroad, in countries such as Italy, Chile, or England. The upper-level Petroleum Field Program course might take you to Trinidad to study active petroleum systems.
