Geophysics is a branch of geological sciences and can actually be defined as the physics of the earth. There are not many global universities that offer high quality, well structured academic programs in the discipline of geophysics.So career aspirants in this field must do a through research before making a final decision regarding their choice of the university.
Canada is home to some good global universities that offer high quality academic programs in various disciplines including geophysics. In Canada, bachelor qualifications in geophysics are available at the Carleton University; the University of Western Ontario; the University of Victoria; the University of Manitoba; the University of Calgary and the University of British Columbia. Master level and doctoral qualifications in geophysics are available at the University of Calgary; the University of British Columbia and the Memorial University of Newfoundland.
