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.

Suggested Master's Programmes

Earth and Environment M.Sc. Earth and Environment
  • Sep 2016
  • EEA € 1,951 per year
  • Non-EEA € 16,600 per year
  • 24 months

The Wageningen University Master Earth & Environment was born from the necessity of helping the next generations of scientists find solutions for the issues confronting the way we look after our planet, now and in the future.

Soil Science M.Sc. Soil Science
  • Sep 2016
  • EEA € 1,951 per year
  • Non-EEA € 14,300 per year
  • 24 months

This specialisation allows you to explore the spatial and temporal processes that are active in soils, landscapes and the wider earth system. It uses an integrative approach that combines biophysical and human elements to gain insight in past, present and future system dynamics. Understanding of soil patterns and landscape dynamics is needed to contribute to the development of alternative land use types that are sustainable and which preserve soil quality. At the same large scale, you develop a deeper understanding of land-atmosphere interactions, the impact of climate change on water and soil resources, adaptation strategies on climate change, and the role of society on these processes.
