  • Special features regarding teaching
    The undergraduate teaching is broadly based and offers good entry opportunities for the 3 Master's degree courses, applied, marine or materials science, each with a wide range of specialisations and profiles, with 8 specialisations in marine (English) or conventional geosciences. Special features: Research-based learning, integrated ship excursions, international bachelor and master programmes, closely networked with the surrounding research institutes and the geological service for Bremen, good conditions for HiWi activities.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    University of Bergen, Norwegen; University of Tromsö, Norwegen; University of Southampton, UK; University of Utrecht, Niederlande; University of Iceland, Island; University of Cluj, Rumänien; University of Bologna, Italien; University of Bordeaux, France; Technical University of Istanbul, Türkei; University of Waikato, Neuseeland
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Equipment: Teaching in one building, PC and notebook lab for students; equipment for microscopy, map and rock sample courses; mineral and palaeontological collection; 4 excursion minibuses; around 20 ultra-modern mass spectroscopes for the analysis of metals, organic components and isotopes; 2 scanning EM and other microscopes; access to research labs, vessels and deep-sea technologies such as ROV, multi-channel seismic systems, geophysical measuring probes.
  • Special features regarding research activities
    The interconnection with MARUM, Centre for Marine Environmental Sciences, opens up the possibility of conducting excellent research in the marine sciences. Ship expeditions and the location of the IODP nuclear repository make Bremen an attractive place for visiting scientists. The integration of mineralogy/crystallography into MAPEX, Centre for Materials and Processes, also offers attractive research opportunities in materials science. A large proportion of international doctoral candidates (40%) and students (33%) attests to the strong international orientation of the faculty.
  • Other special features
    The Department of Earth Sciences is home to 25 independent research groups and works closely with a further 16 co-operating research institutes in the region. They can be assigned to the following main research areas: Climate and ocean dynamics, coastal and sedimentary systems, solid earth - geomaterials, marine geology - geochemistry - geobiology, applied geology. In addition, participation in the development of deep-sea technology, which is unique in the world, is an outstanding feature.
