Master in Earth Sciences
The Master Programme is concluded by means of a thesis and 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 Master's 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's thesis, students must:
- have obtained their Bachelor degree
- have fulfilled all additional requirements (if any)
- have successful completed the MSc Project Proposal
The work will be undertaken with the close involvement of:
- Main Supervisor (mandatory)
- Co-Referee (mandatory)
- Additional Supervisor(s) (optional)
In most cases, the work will be integrated into one of the research groups at the Department of Earth Sciences.
At least main supervisor, co-referee or additional supervisor must be a professor/PD of the Department of Earth Sciences or of the Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science. At least one examiner must belong to another research group. Exceptions have to be approved by the Director of Studies. Grades from all examiners have equal weight for the final mark.
Students hand in a registration form three weeks before the start of the Master's thesis and must also enroll for the Master's thesis through myStudies.
