Umweltgeowissenschaften (auch: Erdwissenschaften) kombinieren Erkenntnisse aus der Physik, Chemie, Biologie und anderen Naturwissenscahften, um die geologische Umgebung zu untersuchen und Lösungen für Umweltprobleme zu entwickeln. Ein Studium umfasst in der Regel alle Schichten der Erde, also Atmosphäre, Hydrosphäre, Lithosphäre und Biosphäre. Weiterhin beschäftigt sich dieses Studium auch mit der Interaktion des Menschen mit der Umwelt.
Jede der zuvor genannten Schichten sind gleichzeitig mögliche Spezialisierungsschwerpunkte mit Wahlfächern wie z.B. Chemie der Atmosphäre, Biologische Ozeanografie oder Geodynamik.
EFM is a high level one-year training in fluid dynamics of natural media, including chemistry and biology coupling, complemented with numerical and experimental methods.

To understand the challenges of tomorrow, we need knowledge of natural resources, condition of the environment and the impact of human actions on it. At the Department of Geosciences and Geography, you will learn a multidisciplinary approach to research, honoring both natural and social sciences.
This program provides a one-year training in the field of atmospheric sciences at the highest level. It offers courses in physics and chemistry given that an interdisciplinary approach is essential to understand atmospheric processes.
This unique MA is designed for students who wish to adopt a twin-tracked approach to the past by using both historical and archaeological evidence. The aim of the programme is to provide research training in preparation for further study for a PhD or for a career outside academia that requires research skills. A key focus of the MA is on the cities of the Roman Empire, especially the capital, Rome.
Chicago Harris and the Division of the Physical Sciences jointly offer the Master of Science degree in Environmental Science and Policy. The broad objective of the program is to provide students with the academic background in both policy and environmental science required for informed decision making in business and government. To a large extent, the curriculum of this program draws upon courses already in place at Chicago Harris and in the Division of the Physical Sciences, although an introductory overview course and an independent study are designed to integrate the policy and science aspects of the program.
This MSc in Applied Marine Geoscience is a full-time one-year course, consisting of 9 months taught course and 3 months research project, and assessed by coursework and examinations. The course provides theoretical and practical training in measuring, quantifying and understanding the physical processes within the geological marine environment. It provides a sound scientific basis on which to decide how best to design and execute marine surveys, be they geophysical, sedimentological or geological, for the required purpose.
Being a graduate student in the Environment and Natural Resources Graduate Program (ENRGP) you will benefit by having the resources of the country’s largest university while enjoying the closeness of a small and innovative academic unit. Graduate students in the ENRGP can embrace both the social and natural sciences or focus on a very specific field.
Graduate training emphasizes developing broad-based knowledge necessary to manage natural resources. The Field of Natural Resources offers students the freedom to design a graduate program that addresses their individual interests. Students work with faculty advisors to identify course requirements and to define a research or professional project. The Field of Natural Resources provides freedom to design a graduate program that addresses the individual interests of students. Excellent laboratory and field facilities are available. Many graduate students in the field also pursue international research topics.
The NanoEngineering graduate degree program prepares students to enter the Nanotechnology workforce, as well as prepare students to enter a wider variety of engineering, science and/or medical career paths. It is clear that Nanotechnology-based industries will play a major role in the future economy.
