Interests that are a good basis for this study programme
You should have an interest in experimental and analytical laboratory activities, and enjoy both classic geological fieldwork, and computer-based modelling. A basic prerequisite for this master’s programme is a subject-relevant first degree.
Geosciences at the University of Graz
In this degree programme you will investigate the formation and structure of the Earth and life on it, and the safeguarding and use of natural resources. Research topics range from global processes (e.g. plate tectonics, oceanography, evolution) to geo- and hydrochemical processes on micro and nano levels, or the development of aquifers, to geotechnical applications. Für die Zulassung ist ein facheinschlägiges Vorstudium notwendig.
Doctoral Programme of Natural Sciences
The Doctoral Programme of Natural Sciences allows you to develop your own research interests further and to perfect your methodological skills. You will work independently to investigate academic questions and contribute to the development of knowledge and innovation in your subject area.
Preparation for a wide range of career paths
As a graduate of this master’s programme you will have a wide range of options for employment in academic and applied roles in the geosciences. Typical fields of work include the construction industry, water management, geotechnics, environmental and resource management, materials and chemical industries, geotechnics-oriented engineering consultancies, or museums and public authorities. You will also be able to work in basic and applied research in universities and non-university institutions.
