Undergraduate Study

BA Natural Sciences


Earth Sciences and Minerals and Materials Sciences are strands of the Natural Sciences Tripos. The Earth Sciences Department is strongly represented at St Edmund's with fellows, graduate students and undergraduates participating in various parts of the Department.

The Department, with its student-run Sedgwick Club, Happy Hour and many branches spread around Cambridge is known as one of the most friendly and runs fieldtrips for fun and as part of the undergraduate courses, in which students and staff travel widely including an undergraduate Christmas Trip to Greece and, for carbonate sedimentologists, one to the Bahamas.

There is good integration between the Department of Earth Sciences and Mineral Sciences, which share labs and buildings and collaborate in the teaching of undergraduate lectures and practicals.
