This is an excellent foundation course in Geology. Covers a very wide range of geology from planet formation, plate tectonics, formation of the solid earth, the water, the climate and life. Teachers are outstanding. They use Google Earth and a program called Build your Own Earth, to reinforce the lectures. Excellent integration of media types. There is even a basic student created textbook (from Lecture notes). The Staff and professors jump right into the discussions. The quality is excellent and the student interaction adds to the courses. The Quizzes test your knowledge and understanding-they are not really easy. There are practice quizzes for each section that help. The Build your own earth material takes some time but really shows the interaction of the earth and its climate. Highly recommend the course.

If you need a solid foundation in Earth's matters, this is the course. From Earth's history, geology, biology, climatology, seismology, history of the atmosphere, and more, you'll go through all the processes necessary to build your knowledge for future classes on Earth's matters, astronomy, astrophysics, cosmology, astrobiology among other courses. It was a very positive experience with Profs and TAs very present with generous feedbacks during the entire course. The Build Your Own Earth software available to the class is a great tool to understand present and past climatology. Also, the google earth tours are amazing. Obviously, a lot of work put in the making of the class. The class material is the kind of material that you can keep on your desktop as a reference when you need it. Great course!

Excellent. I can’t recommend this course highly enough. Superb content, professionally and enthusiastically delivered. It certainly puts Manchester University on the map….if I were a prospective undergraduate, I know where I’d be heading.
