Objectives 

In general, this BSc Degree in Geology promotes the apprenticeship of concepts and methodologies required to characterize the dynamics of Earth Systems, seeking to develop skills that allow understanding the scientific, technological, economic, social, and cultural relevance of Earth Sciences. The growing need to manage and know how to use geological resources (minerals, energy, water) in a sustainable way, as well as predict and mitigate natural hazards, reducing vulnerability and increasing resilience, requires demanding training, supported by solid and eclectic scientific knowledge. This training is equally decisive in the integrated analysis of the biogeophysical and biogeochemical processes that, over time, have shaped the evolution of the Earth, building its geodiversity. Fieldwork experience should therefore be associated with proficiency in the use of modern approaches to process data of a spatial nature at different scales and the use of programming languages.
