Do you see a lot of cross-over in the areas of expertise of people with different Earth Science degrees?

There are many different degrees relating to Earth Science, like Geophysics, Applied or Near-Surface Geophysics, Geochemistry, Geology, pure Earth Science, etc, and different colleges offer different ones. I know that there are technically differences between them, but I also know that college degrees can often prepare students for a variety of careers. Do you often see people with different degrees working on the same projects in similar professions? Have you ever been limited in any way by the degree path you chose? Do certain degrees within Earth Science better prepare students for certain activities and responsibilities than others do? #environmental-science #earth-science #nature #geology #geophysics #oil #hydrologist #geochemistry

Adriana’s Answer

There are many degrees which are related to each other, for example; geophysics, geology, geochemistry, geomorphology, and so on; one by itself cannot be without others. That is why geology is a huge field that include a lot of areas; for instance, in a project like drilling or seismic there are many subjects which are included. All of them are an important part of the seismic or drilling work because each subject gives certain information what is crucial to the study. So, even though there are many degrees working in the same project, each one has its own role in it.

Darshan’s Answer

The degrees listed in the question are in the same Umbrella but difference is the courses vary by schools. Many schools offer education based on what professors are available to teach. Universities with good reputation and strong industry hold may teach courses based on industry, some universities would focus more on hard rock which can be used on mining sector and many focus on petroleum ( soft rock ). The degree may be Geology, Geoscience or Earth science but curicullam from one school may differ from another. In my opinion to be good at something Masters degree is essential for this subject (Earth Science).
