History

Chair of Geology established in 1901 and changed to the Department of Geology in 1902. In 1906 the name was changed to the Department of Geology and Palaeontology. In 1945, the name was changed to the Department of Geology and Mineralogy on the merger of the Departments of Geology and Palaeontology and Mineralogy and Petrography. The department was briefly known as Geological Science, but by the end of 1965, was once again the Department of Geology. The Department has recently changed its name to the Department of Earth Sciences.
