Courses and programmes at the Department of Earth Sciences

Within the Earth Sciences and Geography programmes, the Earth is explored- landmasses, oceans and atmosphere, and how we interact with it's resources and the current and possible future consequences are of such behaviours.

The Department of Earth Sciences has a long tradition of educating geologists who are requested in the labor market, and we are continuously working with the development of our programs.

The teaching in Earth Science consists of lectures, tutorials, labs, excursions on land and by sea, as well as project work. We believe it is especially valuable for our students to gain experience in fieldwork.
