Volcano in Hawaii
The master program Geosciences M.Sc. has been revised. The start of the reformed program is the winter semester 2021/22, an application is possible online ( https://www.uni-jena.de/Bewerbung_MasterExternal link) until July 15, 2021, after which the enrollment starts.
Information on the old, discontinued program MSc. Geosciences Geology (2016), Geophysics (2011), Mineralogy (2016) can be found here.
The most important innovations at a glance:
- Students do not have to determine their field of study (geology, mineralogy, geophysics) at the beginning of their studies, but only at the end.
- In the first year of study there are two common courses in which all students learn the most important geoscientific methods - from all three fields of study.
- There is a new free module in which students can choose from the entire range of courses offered by the university. This makes it possible to acquire important additional interdisciplinary qualifications, for example in economics and languages.
- In addition to the winter semester, entry for the summer semester has now also been created. In this way, longer waiting periods between bachelor's and master's studies can be reduced, which in turn enables earlier entry into professional life.
