Biomarine Sciences is active in the field of Earth and Environment in two MSc programmes, i.e. Environmental Biology (specialisation Biomarine Sciences & Palaeoecology) and Biogeology. The Education web pages of the department of Biology provides more information on the MSc programme Environmental Biology.
The two-year Master's programs comprise approximately one year of participation in courses, up to half a year of research-oriented activities (including lab- and/or field work, seminars, etc.) in small groups or on a semi-individual basis, and are completed with an individual research project of at least half a year. All Master's level courses are offered in English.
On successful completion of the MSc programme, you are awarded an MSc (Master of Science) in Environmental Biology or Biogeology.
The master course Oceans and Climate Change is organized by Biomarine Sciences and is planned in the third teaching term (periode 3, February till April).
