Delhi University for the first time is all set to introduce a five year integrated MSc Programme in Earth Sciences from the current academic session (2011-12), Joint Dean of Students' Welfare Dr. Suman Verma said on Saturday. The course to be offered in the Hans Raj College will be conducted by the Department of Geology. The college will also conduct classes on the interdisciplinary subjects taught as part of the course such as Physics, Chemistry, Communication Skills and Language, Dr. Verma said. The course offers students the choice of leaving after completing three years of study with a BSc Degree if they wish to change disciplines before completing the five years of MSc in Earth Sciences. The course will involve field work in different parts of the country. Students admitted in this course on its completion will find job opportunities in fast expanding fields like Hydro carbon and mineral exploration, with both private and government owned companies like the ONGC (Oil and Natural Gas Corporation) or GAIL (Gas Authority of India Limited). They can also research in subjects like seismology.
