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.
Students of MSc Environmental Sciences learn to develop analytical tools and models, technologies and social-political and economic instruments to prevent and control problems concerning environment.
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.
The MSc Climate Studies is targeted to students who wish to focus on the scientific insights in facing climate change and on social economic implications of climate change.
This graduate certificate program, provides training and competency in geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing, global positioning system (GPS) and related technologies.
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 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.
Conservation, sustainable management and policy aspects of forests and nature areas within all climatic zones (climate change, deforestation, biodiversity, ecotourism, timber production, hunting)
This Master prepares geological engineers to calculate, simulate, anticipate and master the complexity of geological phenomena with the aim of managing in an optimal manner the Earth's resources whilst preserving the natural framework we live in.
The Master’s Programme in Economic Geology is a collaboration between the departments of Geology and Geophysics and the Mining School of the University of Oulu, with extensive international linkages. The programme will be taught entirely in English and comprises 22 modules, including courses in magmatic, hydrothermal and sedimentary ore deposits, structural geology for economic geologists, mining geology, geometallurgy, sampling methods, GIS applications, as well as environmental geochemistry.
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.
Climate-related research is highly relevant for society, scientifically interesting and challenging. Human-induced global climate change has grown into a sense of urgency over the last decades.

Learn about the interdependency of Earth Systems and gain advanced skills in specific areas within Earth Sciences. Explore climate change from the perspectives of Earth processes occurring in the atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere. Find a balance between using and preserving Earth’s resources and reducing the environmental impact for a healthy sustainable future.
