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.
Conservation, sustainable management and policy aspects of forests and nature areas within all climatic zones (climate change, deforestation, biodiversity, ecotourism, timber production, hunting)
This is a one year, full-time postgraduate qualification that will lead to a Master of Science in Environmental Sciences. The key concept of the course is to produce environmental scientists with an interdisciplinary background able to tackle the broadest range of environmental protection issues.
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.
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.
Academic training with a focus on solving spatial problems in rural areas and urban fringes by using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Earth observation imagery (remote sensing).
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.
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.
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.
