More information about the Environmental Earth Sciences & Geology discipline

Environmental Earth Sciences and Geology combines tools provided by Physics, Chemistry, Biology and others to study the geologic environment and to use the accompanying principles in solving environmental problems. By studying all layers of the Earth, atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere, this discipline manages to analyse the interaction of the human with the environment, to identify the issues that we are confronted with and to find means and ways to solve or minimize those issues.

Each of the aforementioned focus areas, the layers of the Earth, presents several specialization opportunities for prospective students of this discipline, with majors ranging from Atmospheric Chemistry to Biological Oceanography or Geodynamics. Providing courses like Physical Geology, Oceanography, Energy and Mineral Resources, Atmospheric Processes, Geochemistry and Sedimentology, the field of Environmental Earth Sciences and will prepare the student to become a professional in environmental processes that can work in environmental and geotechnical research or consulting.

Suggested Study Programmes

  • Master in Geodetic Science

    The M.S. program in Geodetic Science traditionally has focused on the thesis-based M.S. degree; however, there is also an approved Non-Thesis Option (Plan B). The Non-Thesis Option is intended for geodetic scientists in government or industry who do not plan to continue for a Ph.D., and therefore do not require significant preparation in independent research, but whose career paths will benefit from additional educational and practical experience.

  • Master in Energy Management

    The International Hellenic University offers just such a diverse MSc in Energy Management programme that is open to candidates from different academic disciplines (Business/Economics, Engineering, Geotechnical as well as Natural Sciences). Leading academics from prestigious academic institutions from Greece and abroad, together with instructors from public authorities and key players from energy-related organizations, teach in the programme.

  • Master in Geological Sciences

    UMD Geological Sciences offers programs leading to the M.S or Ph.D. within the Graduate School of the University of Minnesota. Faculty and students have a close working relationship. Programs are tailored to the area of the student's specialization, in consultation with a faculty advisor. We strive for research that balances field, laboratory, and theoretical studies. Although most candidates for advanced degrees will have completed a bachelor’s degree in geology, geophysics, or related fields, students in other fields of natural science are encouraged to apply. Applicants should have at least one year each of calculus, chemistry, and physics. Field camp and/or undergraduate research experience is recommended.

  • Master in Sustainable Crop Production: Agronomy for the 21st Century

    Crop agriculture provides mankind’s increasing population with foods, fibres and fuel - this course provides the knowledge and practical skills for how crops are improved, grown and managed. You will gain a combination of practical skills and academic understanding to develop a critical and creative mindset. You will learn the principles of crop production, the latest advances in plant pathology, integrated pest management and weed control, and ecology.

  • Master in Environmental Science and Policy

    Chicago Harris and the Division of the Physical Sciences jointly offer the Master of Science degree in Environmental Science and Policy. The broad objective of the program is to provide students with the academic background in both policy and environmental science required for informed decision making in business and government. To a large extent, the curriculum of this program draws upon courses already in place at Chicago Harris and in the Division of the Physical Sciences, although an introductory overview course and an independent study are designed to integrate the policy and science aspects of the program.

  • Master in Análisis, Gestión y Restauración del Medio Físico

  • Master in Environmental Bioscience in a Changing Climate

    This MSc provides a timely and integrated perspective on environmental bioscience, management, politics and regulation as these relate to issues such as sustainable production of food, energy and provision of ecosytem services.

  • Master in Environment and Natural Resources

    Being a graduate student in the Environment and Natural Resources Graduate Program (ENRGP) you will benefit by having the resources of the country’s largest university while enjoying the closeness of a small and innovative academic unit. Graduate students in the ENRGP can embrace both the social and natural sciences or focus on a very specific field.

  • Master in Natural Resources

    Graduate training emphasizes developing broad-based knowledge necessary to manage natural resources. The Field of Natural Resources offers students the freedom to design a graduate program that addresses their individual interests. Students work with faculty advisors to identify course requirements and to define a research or professional project. The Field of Natural Resources provides freedom to design a graduate program that addresses the individual interests of students. Excellent laboratory and field facilities are available. Many graduate students in the field also pursue international research topics.
