Geosciences (Master of Science)
|Course content and focus areas||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.
|Detailed information||Information from the department
|Degree||Master of Science in Geosciences|
|Duration||The standard length of study for the Master of Science is 4 semesters.|
|Languages of instruction||German|
|Start of the programme||The study programme starts at the beginning of the winter or summer semester.
|Student advisory service||Adviser of the diffenrent disciplines|
|Provisional admission||All students who would like to finish their studies this semester and are interested in starting a Master’s programme in Geoscience at Goethe Universität immediately after the Bachelor’s degree (per e-mail), must apply for admission to the Bachelor’s thesis no later than six weeks after the start of the semester at the examination office (e-mail: A.Schlapp@em.uni-frankfurt.de).
The request must include the following data:
1. personal information (name, matriculation number, contact details)
2. name of the tutor
3. subject of the Bachelor’s thesis
4. list of all the successfully completed modules that have achieved at least 110 CPs
5. proof of the successfully completed seminar from BP6
For more information, see §23 of the study regulations for the Bachelor of Science in Geoscience (http://www.satzung.uni-frankfurt.de/2007/2007-12-07-UniReport-Geowiss.pdf).
The students and tutors concerned will receive written confirmation giving the starting date of the thesis once the request has been checked.
In the event the request for admission is submitted at a later date, the certificates stating the completion of the Bachelor’s degree that are necessary for the studies to continue may not be issued in time.
|Mode of admission||Admission is not restricted. Students will be admitted directly if the admission requirements are met in full.|
