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.

15 Earth Sciences Master's degrees in Netherlands

M.Sc. Earth and Environment

The Wageningen University Master Earth & Environment 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. 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 Earthís crust, mantle, and core. During this two-year programme, you will learn to link geological, geophysical, geochemical, and geodetic observations made at the Earthís surface to physical processes operating within the planet.

Graduate School of Geosciences
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. Hydrology and Water Quality

Students of the Master of Science programme Hydrology and Water Quality are studying the occurrence of water, the water flow, water management and water quality, including the aquatic ecology. In relation to agriculture, nature and environment.

Environment & Landscape
M.Sc. Earth Surface and Water

The Masterís 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 Earthís continental and coastal systems.

Graduate School of Geosciences
M.Sc. Climate Physics

The Masterís programme in Climate Physics from Utrecht University offers you a unique combination of theoretical courses and practical training in all aspects of the Earthís climate. Youíll study the physics, dynamics, and chemistry of the atmosphere, oceans, and cryosphere Ė as well as explore their interactions.

Graduate School of Natural Sciences
M.Sc. Soil Geography and Earth Surface Dynamics

This Soil Geography and Earth Surface Dynamics specialisation at Wageningen UR 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. 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 earthís resources in energy production problems (oil and gas), raw materials technology and geotechnical engineering.

M.Sc. Earth Sciences: Geo-ecological Dynamics

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. Students learn to develop, use and access new knowledge by laboratory experiments, field inventories, data analyses with GIS or dynamic computer models.

Faculty of Science
M.Sc. Earth Sciences

The Earth Sciences programmeís 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, VU University Amsterdam and the programme are much alike: impressive but small enough to make you feel right at home.

Faculty of Earth and Life Sciences
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.
