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.
