Masters in Earth Sciences

Earth Science deals with study of the Earth and its neighbors in space. Earth sciences look-into the aspects such as Earth atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere and general issues. The study field is also known as geoscience and includes multi-disciplines: atmospheric sciences, meteorology, climatology, atmospheric physics, hydrology, oceanography, geodesy, geophysics, geology, mineralogy, glaciology, volcanology, petrology, geomagnetism, sedimentology, soil science, geo-statistics, hydrogeology, astronomy and etc. Graduates can work in many areas, especially geology, environmental science, environmental consultancy firms or governmental institutions.
