Find the programme structure that fits your year of admission on your Study Information.
Geology-Geoscience is a versatile programme, where you'll be joining excursions and field trips in Denmark and abroad. You get an introduction to a range of academic disciplines, as well as methods and concepts within the field of geology.
You will also be working in the lab and on your laptop, analysing the results you've collected in the field. At the same time you train your skills to communicate the results both orally and in writing.
Do a Project in Practice or Study Abroad
The entire second year of the programme you work on your Master’s thesis. Examples of topics for recent MSc theses are:
