Additionally, stays abroad and relevant professional experience are recommended and can be given credit within the programme.
Students can study areas of interest in more detail by choosing courses individually in the following subject areas:
Up to two of these specialisation areas can be mentioned as specialisations in the master’s degree certificate.
The master's programme is structured in a very flexible way and gives students the opportunity to specialise individually within the subject of geosciences. It offers an optimal combination of theoretical principles and practical applications and gives graduates a perfect basis for professional work in either basic or applied fields.
According to the curriculum, graduates of the following bachelor’s programmes offered at TU Graz and University of Graz will be accepted without an admission procedure:
Graduates of all other degree programmes offered at the TU Graz or, in the case of a NAWI Graz programme, the University of Graz, also do not have to undergo the admission procedure. You can apply for admission at the Registration Office.
All other programme applicants must undergo the admission procedure.
Registration period for the academic year 2020/21: 15 October to 15 December 2019
The master's programme in Geosciences prepares students for a scientific career in all subject areas of the geosciences. Additionally, the programme constitutes professional training for work in the following fields:
Graduates of the programme work nationally and internationally in basic and applied research in university and non-university institutions, in industry, mining, engineering firms, museums and public administration.
I chose this study programme because of my enthusiasm for nature and the geological diversity that exists on our planet. At school, questions such as how the Alps had evolved or why rocks have different colours, strengths and structures intrigued me immensely. What I think is special about studying geosciences is that you not only learn about the development of the earth and all related processes from the beginning until today, but you acquire enormous general knowledge as well.
However, this wide range of topics is not just taught in the lecture hall, but also practised directly on numerous excursions and hikes to help you apply theoretical processes to real nature.
