Studying Earth Sciences

Earth Sciences deal with the study of the Earth and its neighbours in space. Earth sciences look into aspects such as the Earth atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere and other general issues. Earth Sciences degrees are closely related to planetary sciences and can lead to careers in geology engineering.

Studying in Netherlands

The Netherlands (also known as Holland) was the first non-English-speaking country to offer degrees in English. Therefore, various programmes are taught in English and are very internationally oriented.

18 Earth Sciences Master's degrees in Netherlands

M.Sc. Soil Geography and Earth Surface Dynamics

This Soil Geography and Earth Surface Dynamics specialisation at Wageningen University and Research allows you to explore the spatial and temporal processes that are active in soils, landscapes and the wider earth system. It uses an integrative approach that combines biophysical and human elements to gain insight in past, present and future system dynamics.

Environment & Landscape
M.Sc. Spatial Planning

The Master's programme Spatial Planning (previously known as Planologie) from Utrecht University trains you to solve conflicting interests on urban land. Many stakeholders have different ideas on how to use land – learn to balance them and find sustainable solutions.

Graduate School of Geosciences
M.Sc. Climate Physics

The Master’s programme in Climate Physics from Utrecht University offers you a unique combination of theoretical courses and practical training in all aspects of the Earth’s climate. You’ll study the physics, dynamics, and chemistry of the atmosphere, oceans, and cryosphere – as well as explore their interactions.

Graduate School of Natural Sciences
M.Sc. Innovation Sciences

In this Master’s programme in Innovation Sciences at Utrecht University you will learn how to transform new ideas, knowledge and inventions into marketable innovations. You will analyse innovation in companies, as well as the position of these companies within the wider innovation system.

Graduate School of Geosciences
M.Sc. Meteorology and Air Quality

The MSc Meteorology and Air Quality at Wageningen University allows you to specialise as a meteorologist, air quality consultant or as an atmospheric scientist. With your research you will contribute to the further understanding of atmospheric processes and their relevance for weather and climate. You take courses in the fields of Weather and Climate Dynamics, Urban Meteorology and Air Quality, Atmospheric Chemistry and Air Quality, Boundary-Layer Meteorology and Land-Atmosphere Interactions.

M.Sc. Earth Sciences

The Earth Sciences programme’s excellent reputation is partly due to the fact that it is small enough to facilitate personal contact between all participants but large enough to encompass the full range of pecializations. In that sense, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and the programme are much alike: impressive but small enough to make you feel right at home.

M.Sc. Energy Science

The Energy Science programme from Utrecht University is aimed at students with a background in science or engineering who want to contribute to the transition towards sustainable energy systems.

Graduate School of Natural Sciences
M.Sc. Earth Structure and Dynamics

In the Master in Earth Structure and Dynamics programme from Utrecht University, you will explore the composition, structure, and evolution of the Earth’s crust, mantle, and core. During this two-year programme, you will learn to link geological, geophysical, geochemical, and geodetic observations made at the Earth’s surface to physical processes operating within the planet.

Graduate School of Geosciences
M.Sc. Earth Surface and Water

The Master’s programme in Earth Surface and Water from Utrecht University involves the study of natural and human-induced physical and geochemical processes, patterns, and dynamics of the Earth’s continental and coastal systems.

Graduate School of Geosciences
M.Sc. Hydrology and Water Resources

Students of the Master of Science programme Hydrology and Water Resources at Wageningen University and Research will gain a broad overview of climate change during this two-year programme. As changes and challenges crystallise, the demand for scientists able to understand and investigate them will rise.

Environment & Landscape
M.Sc. Marine Sciences

Marine Sciences studies how marine systems and processes operate naturally and how they change through human intervention.

Graduate School of Geosciences
M.Sc. Earth, Life and Climate

In the Master's programme in Earth, Life, and Climate from Utrecht University, you will explore the fundamental processes which regulate the past, present, and future dynamics of sedimentary systems, biodiversity, and climate, as well as their evolution.

Graduate School of Geosciences
M.Sc. Earth and Environment

The Master Earth and Environment at Wageningen University and Research was born from the necessity of helping the next generations of scientists find solutions for the issues confronting the way we look after our planet, now and in the future.

Environment & Landscape
M.Sc. Applied Earth Sciences

The two-year Master of Science in Applied Earth Sciences is a challenging Engineering Programme for students with wide-ranging backgrounds (petroleum engineering, chemical engineering, geology, geophysics, civil engineering, natural sciences) who are interested in and concerned about sustainable use of the earth’s resources in energy production problems (oil and gas), raw materials technology and geotechnical engineering.

M.Sc. Earth Sciences

Earth Sciences focus on the interactions between the earth, the atmosphere, surface waters and biological systems. It also studies how these are affected by human activities.
