If you are looking for a top-notch masters degree program in geology and at the same time be interested in practical applications on the environmental field, then a masters program in Geoscience might be the appropriate program for you.

A masters program in Geoscience is not just a masters in geology degree. It combines both expertise in theoretical areas of geology and technical expertise in geochemistry, hydrogeology, engineering geology, and geophysics. This program prepares a student to tackle a wide range of both practical and pressing environmental problems, in the field where you can make a real and practical difference.

A masters program in Geoscience is applicable in places where the following environmental challenges occur: Soil and water contamination; Waste disposal; Human-induced natural disasters like landslides and floods; and the need for extraction methods for environmentally safe energy.

A student of the program can focus on any of the above fields in geoscience that interests them the most. Some of the available areas for specialization include: hydrogeology, engineering geology, and environmental geology. The program is offered either full-time or part-time. The masters degree in Geoscience program provides academic foundation for licensure as a professional Geologist.

The specialty Applied Geoscience is an offer for English speaking students not only from the European Union but also from all over the world. The program lasts 2 years (4 semesters). To obtain a master's degree, students must write and defend a master thesis. The program of these studies comprises the most important aspects of geosciences proposed in four semesters. The knowledge of mineralogy and petrology, stratigraphy, structural and economic geology, applied hydrogeology, environmental geochemistry, and environmental protection are proposed as a consistent academic course, which difficulty increases from the first to the third semester. As a consequence, the second and third-semester courses continue and build up on the knowledge obtained during previous semesters. All the courses are related to the wide aspects of the applied geoscience knowledge and include problems of environmental protection and as such teach issues strongly linked to present-day problems of the world. During the final fourth semester, students work almost exclusively on their MSc dissertation. -
