University of St Andrews
Our MSc in Geochemistry, run by the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at St Andrews, delivers postgraduate-level knowledge and skills training in modern geochemical methods, involving field work, hands-on laboratory training, and experience with state-of-the-art equipment. This broad and rigorous course provides preparation for either pursuing a PhD, by incorporating a lab-based research dissertation, or direct employment in industry through incorporation of applied economic and environmental geochemistry modules.
A good Honours degree (UK 2.1) or equivalent from a recognised overseas institution is required.
Core skills modules include: introduction to geochemistry; isotope geochemistry, physical chemistry laboratory; advanced geochemistry; earth's greatest hits; and the rio tinto geochemistry field excursion. Optional modules: water in the environment (es); advanced petrogenesis (es; biogeochemistry (es); metallogeny (es); advanced spectroscopic methods (ch); processing of materials (ch); energy conversion and storage (ch); and advanced molecular inorganic solids (ch).
Your coursework will include laboratory exercise and field excursion reports, homework problem sets, reading assignments and essays, discussion seminars, oral and poster presentations, lab tests and examinations, and a written dissertation.
