Faculty of Earth Sciences

Studies in geology at the University of Barcelona date back to 1910 when a degree in natural sciences was first offered, with this school splitting into the Faculties of Geology and Biology, in 1953.

The current degree in geology is aimed at teaching the composition, structure, morphology and history of the Earth, as well as popular methods applied to these studies. Practical work is also of major importance, and the Faculty prioritizes its fieldwork. During their degree period, students complete around 80 days of fieldwork as part of compulsory subjects, guided by teaching staff, and have an additional quota in optional subjects.

In 1990 the UB and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya established joint courses in geological engineering. The aim of these studies is to provide knowledge of the principles and methods of geological work, along with a technical knowledge of applied engineering.

The Faculty also encompasses the School of Gemmology, which offers a diploma course in this subject.
