MSc courses

Master (MSc) courses and research

Students from both biology (Master Environmental Biology) and geosciences (Masters Earth, Life and Climate & Sustainable Development) do (part of) their master program at Palaeoecology.

The master course 'Extreme Climate Transitions' (ECT) (in English, 7.5 ECTS) is coordinated and given by the Palaeoecology and Biomarine Science groups and runs in first teaching term (timeslot A). Students are presented advanced lectures and literature discussions in small groups on actual themes. They will jointly work on multidisciplinary datasets on important biotic and climatic transitions in the history of the earth using literature recourses and new data.

The palaeoecology group has research opportunities for motivated biology or geoscience students into all our current research aspects (see ‘research’), and has a wide network of research groups at universities and other institutes to connect with. Interested students can contact Friederike Wagner-Cremer or Timme Donders.
