    The minerals, energy, geotechnical and environmental geoscience sectors remain some of the world’s most significant industries.

    To take your place in these industries, you’ll need the type of advanced, specialised knowledge that the Master of Geoscience provides.

    In the Master of Geoscience, you’ll undertake intensive specialised subjects in geoscience, but also round out your skill set with business and leadership subjects, all taught by leading academics and industry professionals.

    A course tailored for you

    If you want to dig deeper into the science behind the minerals industry, our economic geology stream will develop your skills in mineral exploration, mining geology and resource geology.

    If you'd rather explore the energy sector, we offer a stream in this area as well.

    Or, if you’re interested in the geotechnical industry or the environment, we also offer streams in earth structure and geophysics, as well as environmental geoscience.

    Regardless of your specialisation, the Master of Geoscience allows you to build your knowledge across the entire geoscientific discipline.

    More than just technical skills

    You'll complete tailored business and leadership subjects, better preparing you for the workforce or further research in the field.

    We know that soft skills are important too, which is why we include a subject on scientific communication, to ensure you can speak and write effectively about your research.

    Access to the best Australia has to offer

    You’ll have the opportunity to study subjects at leading Australian universities through established shared local and national teaching programs.

    Students can study core and elective subjects in a range of geoscientific fields at leading Australian Universities through the established Victorian Institute of Earth and Planetary Sciences (VIEPS) partnership.
