Applied and Environmental Geology

General information

The follow-up Master's study programme of Applied and Environmental Geology is intended for students planning to work in a common geological company environment. The programme is aimed at completing Master's degree in any form of the studies: full-time, on-line and part-time (combined). It also covers selected applied areas of specialization, a practical course in mining documentation and courses linked to preparing Master's thesis.

The goal of the studies in the follow-up Master's degree programme is to consolidate and deepen, irrespective of the chosen study programme, education gained in the previous Bachelor's degree programme and get professional qualifications in geology. The graduates are qualified to work independently and creatively in geological branches as theoreticians, practical geologists or educators.

The study program of Geology prepares highly educated specialists in geological branches, such as environmental geology, geophysics, geochemistry, historical geology, hydrogeology, mineralogy, magmatic and metamorphic petrology, palaeontology, quarternary geology and karsology, regional geology, sedimentary geology, soil mechanics and tectonics.

A successful graduate is able to

  • independently solve specific geological problems (setting solution procedures, processing scientific literature and data sources, choice of methodology, analysis of results, drawing conclusions)
  • write a research paper based on their own research and present the results of the research at an adequate level both orally and in a written form
  • demonstrate deep knowledge of practical disciplines according to their specializations (economic geology, hydrogeology, engineering geology, environmental geology)

Graduate employment

The graduates are expected to find employment especially in specialized geological companies, in institutes applying geological knowledge to practical needs (such as environmental departments etc.).
