Conditions of admission
|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.
