Description

The internationally oriented postgraduate study programme Master of Science “Marine Geosciences” promotes the latest state of marine geosciences and technology. It enables graduates to create and critically assess scientific results and to plan, carry out and evaluate ship and laboratory projects on their own responsibility. Emphasis is placed on current marine and climate issues, which are under investigation by the federal marine research institutions in Bremen and Bremerhaven. The interdisciplinary character of marine geosciences is mirrored by a topic-centred course structure. The courses strongly emphasize the understanding and modelling of processes and dynamics in natural systems. The multidisciplinary nature of marine geoscientific research, the application of up-to-date scientific instruments and computer software play an important role in teaching methods and topics.
