About

Memorial University of Newfoundland has one of the largest and most diverse Earth Sciences departments in Canada. With 30 faculty members, 15 staff members, and leading-edge teaching and research facilities, the department is able to offer high quality graduate degree programs. 

Overview

Graduates of Memorial’s Department of Earth Sciences have gone on to careers in academia, government, and the private sector. This master degree is available at the Memorial University of Newfoundland. 

The Province of Newfoundland and Labrador is an excellent natural laboratory in which to study Earth Sciences and many of our courses have field-based components. The cross-section of geology that can be studied in Newfoundland and Labrador is unparalleled and spans a large part of Earth’s history. Our department’s long-standing, excellent reputation is, in part, due to its close proximity to this world-class geology.

Memorial’s Department of Earth Sciences maintains close ties to the mining and petroleum industries of Canada, the USA, and elsewhere. Each year, leading petroleum and mineral exploration companies recruit at Memorial University because of the excellent education and training our students receive, and have taken with them throughout the world.
