Msc.Environmental Geosciences

EGS is the newest of the five accredited Masters Study programmes offered in English and it is open for bachelor graduates in Applied Ecology, Geology or similar fields. The programme provides a solid theoretical and practical background in Earth Sciences; students will be able to identify and analyse specific environmental issues linked to Earth Sciences; they will work independently in various laboratories at the Faculty and present their results during seminars, field excursions and workshops. Students will gain insight into various disciplines, e.g., Geology, Environmental Hydrogeology, Paleoecology, Environmental Geochemistry and Mineralogy. Graduates are prepared for positions in science and engineering in the field of environmental remediation or as a specialist working for national and international institutions.

Environmental Geosciences are currently at the forefront of many scientific disciplines and have an important practical outcome as well. The understanding of pollutants’ behaviour in various environmental compartments, remediation of contaminated sites and evolution of ecosystems in the Earth’s history are just a few examples of the topics covered by the programme. The laboratories at the Faculty of Environmental Sciences are equipped with high-end instrumentation for advanced specialized methods used in environmental geochemistry, such as speciation and specialized isotope analyses. These techniques are currently fast emerging and crucial in the developing fields of Environmental Geochemistry and Biogeochemistry. Students may take additional classes not included in the EGS study plan; these will be added to your transcript of records. Graduates may choose to continue their studies at the PhD level with a variety of resources available to support their advanced level of research.
Erasmus exchange students can enrol for one or two semesters.
