Overview

The Bachelor’s degree in Geological Sciences is envisaged as the first part of an aggregate educational project that follows in the LM-74 Master Degree (Geologia e Geologia Tecnica). As a consequence, the main mission of the Course is to provide learning skills focused on the knowledge of basic preparatory sciences and of the fundaments of Geosciences.
Taking advantage also of several practical training stages, the student will acquire skills and knowledge on the chemical, physical, biological, and geological processes that determined and are still determining the evolution of the shallow and deep Earth.
Through such studies, the student will learn how to cope with interdisciplinary problems related to natural risks (e.g., hydrogeological risk, volcanism, earthquakes) and to acquire a scientific approach in tangling with a large spectrum of geological problems, from mining and oil exploration, to the management of natural and anthropic landscapes and their resources. Field and laboratory hands-on training and stages in industry and enterprises, as well as in other Italian or European University, are foreseen.

Career opportunities

Despite the non-professionalizing character of the degree, the Bachelor in Geological Science may be employed as a technician in public companies, environmental agencies and research institutions, as well as in private geological companies working on land and resource management, mining and oil exploration, and on the characterization of geomaterials. Once passed the Geologist Certification Examination (“Esame di Stato”), the BSc in Geological Sciences can be admitted to the Professional Association of Geologists (“Albo Professionale dei Geologi”) as Junior Geologist (Section B).
