Sustaining a growing population on our dynamic planet requires a deep understanding of geological and geophysical processes within the Earth, and of how they interact with the atmosphere, hydrosphere, and Biota. This Master's Program in Geology and Geophysics helps to address pressing questions concerning the planet's evolution, its role as the source of raw materials needed by modern civilization, and environmental issues.
The program includes four study tracks:
- Petrology and Economic Geology;
- Hydrogeology and Environmental Geology;
- Paleontology and Global Change;
- Solid Earth Geophysics.
