The international Master's Programme in Geophysics is research-oriented. It allows students to specialise in one of the following fields: Geodynamics, Seismology or Paleo- and Geomagnetism. The Munich Geophysics is internationally noted for its research expertise in numerical modeling and simulation. Therefore we are interested in recruiting not only students with a background in the geosciences, but equally students from physics, mathematics, or the engineering sciences.
The courses are organised in a modular fashion according to the European Bologna approach. It is an international programme and all courses are offered in English language (at students' request). Successful graduates of the programme are awarded the degree of Master of Science (M.Sc.). In this respect the new programme replaces the former Diplomstudiengang Geophysik.
The master's programme in Geophysics started in the winter term 2007/2008. It is jointly offered by the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) and the Technische Universität München (TUM) under the roof of the Munich Geocenter. As lead university of the programme LMU is responsible for enrolment.
* Fundamentals from Mathematics and Physics
* Basic Geophysics
* Advanced Geophysics
* Independent Scientific Research
Specialisation: choose one module from the following three
* Advanced Geodynamics
* Advanced Seismology
* Advanced Paleo- and Geomagnetism
Choose two modules from the following
* Geochemistry and Geomaterials
* Applied and Industrial Geophysics
* ESPACE (Earth oriented space science)
Candidates for the programme must possess the equivalent of a bachelor's degree (in a programme of at least 6 semesters) with a final grade of at least 3.0 (when translated to the German grading system) in one of the following fields:
* Engineering Sciences
* or related subject
Candidates for the programme must provide proof of very good mastery of the English language. This can be documented by various means.
* Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a result of at least 213 points (computer-based test)
* Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English (CAE); grade A or B
* Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE); grade A or B
Alternative proofs may be accepted by the board of examiners if a corresponding application is made. This might e.g. be a
* higher education entrance qualification from an institution with English as language of instruction
* degree from an higher education institution with English as language of instruction
* a bachelor's thesis written in the English language
However, in general a standardised test is definitely preferred.

Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) is part of the Cambridge English suite and is targeted at a high level (IETLS 6.5-8.0). It is an international English language exam set at the right level for academic and professional success. Developed by Cambridge English Language Assessment - part of the University of Cambridge - it helps you stand out from the crowd as a high achiever.
