Geology/Earth Sciences and the Interdisciplinary Project
Candidates with an interest in studying Geology/Earth Sciences could further develop this interest through an Interdisciplinary Project Unit even if this subject is not available to them as a National Course. These Units are one component of one of the Scottish Baccalaureate awards but can also be undertaken as a stand-alone Unit.
The resource pack below provides additional information for candidates wishing to choose a Geology or Earth Sciences Interdisciplinary Project theme. It should be read in conjunction with further information on the Scottish Baccalaureates pages of the SQA website and in particular the Candidate Guide to the Interdisciplinary Project component of the Scottish Baccalaureate.
The pack contains:
- an extensive list of professional bodies, organisations and resources (including publications, journals and websites) relevant to the subject area.
- examples of interdisciplinary project themes
- a proposal and plan for one of these example themes
- two examples of complete Interdisciplinary Projects with a Geology theme, one a Science and the other a Languages project.
