Description:Earth Sciences is the natural science that deals with Earth, the interior make-up, and superficial features, its formative and destructive pro­cesses, its age, history and development through time. Geologists are concerned with a diverse range of issues such as the origin, migration and quality of groundwater, river and coastal erosion, desert-dune migration, the origin and evolution of oceans and continents, of mountain ranges, valleys and canyons. Studies concerning the causes and effects of natural hazards, such as those created by land and rockslides, earthquakes, floods and droughts, and volcanic eruptions all fall within the realm of Geology.

The Department of Earth Sciences operates a Co-operative Education (Co-op) Program that is available to academically qualified Earth Sciences students who have completed two years of study. The program allows students to put classroom knowledge to practical and profitable use in the Canadian workplace. At UNB the Co-op Program in Earth Sciences consists of eight study terms of four months each and two work terms of eight months each.
