Meteorology is the science of weather and climate and much more! It is a geosciences discipline deeply rooted in physics, investigating atmospheric processes by experimental-empirical and theoretical methods. Besides to physics and mathematics, it also has connections to chemistry, oceanography, hydrology, and geography.

Other than in the bachelor program in meteorology, where the scientific foundations are laid, here students have extensive freedoms to structure their curriculum according to their personal preferences. From the first semester on, staff from the various research groups systematically prepares them to research which they will do for their master’s thesis. Possible directions are... [-]

Physics is the science of the structure, characteristics, conditions and motion of matter and energy, as well as the underlying interactions and forces and the resulting dimensions. As such, it is the material basis of all natural sciences and all technical disciplines. It is a science that is based on activity, as it requires experimental and theoretical implementation, utilisation and further development of its content and methods.

It is also a quantitative science, as the aim of physics is the quantitatively reproducible description of processes in nature and the production of quantitative correlations between different phenomena and classes of phenomena. In order to achieve these targets, physics relies to a large extent on mathematical methods.The wide range of tasks means that physics students must learn to be able to become acquainted with very different special subjects quickly in professional life, even if it was not part of their study programme. This skill relies on a profound understanding and clear command of the widest range of basic scientific information and methods possible, and this is the main focus of the study programme.... [-]

Neuroscience spans many disciplines. Its repertoire stretches from molecular biology and proteome research to systems neurobiology, cognitive neuroscience, and clinical research. Successful research in neuroscience rests on a combination of differential concepts and methodical approaches.The major objective of the program is to offer to talented students a highly research-oriented training that will provide them with a broad overview of the most relevant fields of neuroscience, including basic neuroscience, clinical neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience and computational neuroscience. This also includes relevant practical skills.

The program will confront students with various levels of complexity of neural functions from molecular biology to systems neuroscience. A major characteristic comprises the optional training in clinical neuroscience that will familiarise students with neuropathology and aspects of neurology and will provide them with hands-on information on current technical approaches applied in clinical research.You do not require previous intensive training in neuroscience. However, solid background knowledge in the field of neuroscience is essential for following the courses. This includes the principal education in laboratory techniques, particularly in cell biological bench work. As the program is an interdisciplinary one, we invite applications from students from various fields.... [-]

Geoscience examines temporal and spatial changes in Earth’s system, changes that are linked to the features and material composition of geo matter by observing, measuring and modelling.

The dimensions range from the smallest temporal and spatial units (e.g. atmospheric discharges or crystalline structures) up to the age of Earth, the global continental drift and mantle convection. The diverse interactions require intensive co-operation among very different disciplines.

At the Department of Geoscience/Geography at Goethe Universität Frankfurt, these disciplines are meteorology, physical geography, geology, palaeontology, mineralogy and geophysics. There are also close links with the Senckenberg Museum and the Institute of Applied Geosciences at TU Darmstadt. Lectures given by members of both institutions are included in the programme. The Master’s programme in Geoscience is based on traditional earth sciences and students receive instruction in geology, palaeontology, geophysics and mineralogy. The Master’s programme can follow a Bachelor’s degree. Students on the study programme can specialise in geology, geophysics, mineralogy or palaeontology.... [-]

The target of the study programme is to provide students with a further education in chemistry. The Master’s programme not only offers the option of focusing on a specialist area but students will also acquire the necessary skills for this and they will learn to think independently and act responsibly.

Graduates should be able to assess the characters of chemical compounds and to apply the necessary methods for solving challenging chemical problems. Methods, procedures, research and industrial fields of activity are constantly changing, so it is the aim of the chemistry programme to teach students the necessary knowledge in a way that enables them to familiarise themselves quickly with new developments, to be introduced to new areas and to make independent contributions to further developments of research and technology in their specialised area once they have finished their programme.The Master’s examination is the second professional chemistry degree. During the four semesters of the Master’s programme, which follow on from the six semesters of the Bachelor’s programme, students will acquire the profound, specialised knowledge necessary for the transition to professional practice. The broad spectrum of the academic programme will ensure that students acquire the skills necessary for demanding fields of activity in industry, economy and administration.... [-]

Mathematics is a major cultural science with a history dating back to ancient times. However, it is also the driving force behind many modern technologies and has become a key technology in the Information Era. This fact contradicts the public image of mathematics, which is often seen as a closed world of theorems and arithmetic formulae. However, there are mathematical methods and processes behind issues and problems such as data compression and data safety, traffic control, the optimisation of financial instruments and non-destructive medical techniques. These processes give rise to a vivid science with many unsolved problems and an enormous impact on applications.

Studying mathematics is highly appealing and a great intellectual challenge. It can help you prepare for a career as a mathematician in business and industry and as a mathematics teacher.Students on the Master of Science course build on the skills learned in the Bachelor’s programme by acquiring the following:• knowledge of the main mathematical disciplines, their methodological approaches and their interrelations, • an insight into up-to-date research results and the significance of these, • the ability to deal with a comprehensive mathematical task independently in a Master thesis, • the skills needed to work as a mathematical assistant or employee in an academic institution, • the basis for a PhD....
