About

The Institute of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Freiburg offers a full-time master program Geology, leading to M.Sc. degree.

Overview

Overview

The University of Freiburg Geology programme can look back on a long and successful history, which is linked to internationally recognized scientist personalities such as  Gustav Steinmann (1886-1906).

Geology offers students courses in the fields of plate tectonics and structural geology, rock mechanics and petrophysics, and general and regional geology. Central topics in research and teaching are planetary geology and impact research.

The aim of our research is to understand and quantify dynamic and highly dynamic geological processes.

The periods in which these events take place range from microseconds to millions of years. In addition to the classical method of geological survey, experimental methods for rock deformation and remote sensing play a major role.
