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.
This MSc course explores current aspects of Earth science, investigating how the Earths lithosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere are dependent upon each other, interacting across a wide range of temporal and spatial scales. You will learn to critically evaluate current research and gain skills that allow you to update your knowledge of Earth science.
Human Geography offers the chance to study advanced topics in fields such as economic, political and social geography, whilst giving students the flexibility to work with the specific questions which interest them most in this broad field.
This MSc in Marine Environmental Protection is a full-time one-year course, consisting of 9 months taught course and 3 months research project, and examined by continuous assessment. The course provides theoretical and practical training in measuring and quantifying marine resources and the effects of conflicting usage upon them. It provides a sound scientific basis on which to develop policy and make decisions on marine resource exploitation and protection around the world.
This MSc in Applied Marine Geoscience is a full-time one-year course, consisting of 9 months taught course and 3 months research project, and assessed by coursework and examinations. The course provides theoretical and practical training in measuring, quantifying and understanding the physical processes within the geological marine environment. It provides a sound scientific basis on which to decide how best to design and execute marine surveys, be they geophysical, sedimentological or geological, for the required purpose.
The Master Program in Marine Resources Biotechnology main purpose is to form professionals with scientific, technical and human capabilities that allow the development of applied research or management activities in the area of marine resources biotechnology.
The M.Sc. ICSS program offers courses in all fields of climate system sciences. At present, the program allows the specialization in one of following three tracks: › physics of the climate system; › biogeochemistry of the climate system; › climate related economics and social sciences. All courses are held in English. Class size is limited to 20 students. Our research oriented study program has been accredited by ASIIN in 2010. Professional perspectives Become a climate expert! After graduation our students successfully work as researchers in the fields of natural, social and economic sciences, consultants in the public service and private business sectors, and in non-governmental organizations, or pursue a PhD.
This Masters Program has been selected by the Erasmus Mundus Program of the European Commission (2007-0064/001 FRAME MUNB123) as one of the most excellent Masters Programs in Europe.
Coastal and Marine Management is a cross-disciplinary master´s program that prepares students to engage with one of the most compelling and important subjects today: natural resource management and utilization.
This program provides a one-year training in the field of atmospheric sciences at the highest level. It offers courses in physics and chemistry given that an interdisciplinary approach is essential to understand atmospheric processes.
This MSc in Petroleum Geoscience provides training in the practical and technical skills to address a range of exploration and production challenges, from predicting the likely distribution of hydrocarbons in a frontier sedimentary basin, to quantifying the complex structural, stratigraphic and sedimentological architecture of individual reservoirs.
