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.
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.
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. With internationally recognized researchers in the fields of fundamental fluid mechanics closely linked to modelling and observations of natural media...
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.
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 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 M.S. program in Geodetic Science traditionally has focused on the thesis-based M.S. degree; however, there is also an approved Non-Thesis Option (Plan B). The Non-Thesis Option is intended for geodetic scientists in government or industry who do not plan to continue for a Ph.D., and therefore do not require significant preparation in independent research, but whose career paths will benefit from additional educational and practical experience.
Our proposed M.A. program is of high standards, dedicated to training of students in a wide variety of topics related to prehistory, environmental archaeology, subsistence, past adaptations to changing environments, and the varied exact and natural sciences involved in the research of such topics.
This MSc in Marine Environmental Protection is a full-time one-year course, consisting of 9 months taught course and 3 months research project, and examined by continuous assessment. The course provides theoretical and practical training in measuring and quantifying marine resources and the effects of conflicting usage upon them. It provides a sound scientific basis on which to develop policy and make decisions on marine resource exploitation and protection around the world.
The Earth and Environmental Engineering (EEE) Department offers a Master of Science in Earth Resources Engineering (M.S.-E.R.E.) degree, designed for engineers and scientists who plan to pursue, or are already engaged in, environmental management/development careers.
