A profound knowledge of the Earth’s system is essential to tackle climate change issues. As a Master’s student of Earth Sciences, you will learn to find sustainable solutions for present and future challenges regarding our planet and climate. You will study the natural processes and cycles of the Earth’s system within and between rock, soil, water, living things and air. You will quantify the magnitude and rate of these processes in both space and in time. Earth Sciences students look at the influence of humanity on the Earth’s Systems to address questions such as: What can past and present conditions tell us about the future? How can we use Earth system knowledge to effectively address global challenges such as climate change?
In this two-year programme you will choose one of three specialisations:
- Geology and Geochemistry
- Earth and Climate
- Global Environmental Change and Policy
