Postgraduate Degree Programmes
Geology in the 21st Century is a fascinating, exciting, incredibly diverse and multidisciplinary subject. New Zealand, on the active margin of the Pacifc, with its volcanoes, earthquakes, dramatic and varied geomorphology, and its 500 million years of pre- and post-Gondwana geological history, is one of the best places on Earth to study geological processes relating to the tectonics of continental margins, ancient and modern. Our position in mid-southern latitudes and relative proximity to Antarctica means that New Zealand is a key location for climate change. In addition we have research programmes in applied felds including engineering and environmental geology, and hazard and disaster management.
