In the applied geosciences master’s degree, in-depth scientific and analytical-methodological skills are acquired. With its three profiles, the master’s course offers a professional specialization in the areas of geo-energy & raw materials, hydrogeology & engineering geology, or mineralogy & geochemistry. Numerous modules from the three profiles are open to students with a wide range of interests. The master's thesis serves the scientific qualification. Graduates of the master’s degree are able to independently plan, design, and carry out geoscientific projects and apply the knowledge they have acquired in a job-related manner.
