Studying Geology

Geology is the earth science that studies earth history, materials and processes, and their impact on the environment. Important research areas include hydro- and geochemistry, hydrogeology and the management of natural resources. Geology is closely related to other scientific fields such as oceanography, soil sciences, engineering geology and environmental sciences.

3 Geology Master's degrees in Germany

M.Sc. Marine Geosciences

The exploration of resources such as hydrocarbons and hydrothermal deposits in the ocean have become increasingly important for the future security of resources. Furthermore, it plays an important role in the study of geodynamical processes and protection of the shores. Beyond that, the ocean is of great importance to the climate system of the Earth as a whole. The changes in the climate system in the past and present can be reconstructed with geoscientific methods. The insights about the dynamics of the system ocean-climate obtained in such a manner represent a basis for modelling calculations used for forecasting of the future climate(s).

M.Sc. Geology

The Master of Science (M.Sc.) is an internationally recognized degree which can be accomplished within 2 years upon completion of four semesters of study. This guide aims at presenting the vision, structure, and course of the master program and provides necessary details of the individual courses and modules. Together with the M.Sc. program “Sustainable materials / Crystalline Materials” it reflects the main areas of geoscience research in Freiburg.
