MSc in Earth Sciences

The Master Programme is concluded by means of a thesis.

The subject of the thesis is defined in the MSc Project Proposal (651-4060-00). The focus is in the major study area and will represent either an applied or fundamental research project. The MSc Thesis is often written in the form of an internationally publishable paper.

If geological mapping or sampling are required, early planning of the project is essential to provide flexibility in scheduling time in the field.

Before starting on the Master Thesis, students must:
The work will be undertaken with the close involvement of:
  1. Main Supervisor (mandatory)
  2. Co-Referee (mandatory)
  3. Additional Supervisor(s) (optional)

and, in most cases, will be integrated into one of the research groups at D-ERDW.

At least one person (main supervisor, co-referee or additional supervisor) must be a professors/lecturer of D-ERDW or approved by the study delegate. One member of the supervisors must be outside of the research group.

Students hand in a registration form three weeks before the start of the Master thesis and must also enroll for the Master’s Thesis through myStudies.

Please find guidelines and further information on our Documents page.
