  • Special features regarding teaching
    The 15 professorships and working groups at the Institute of Geosciences reflect the broad range of geosciences at Goethe University. This multitude of subject orientations is reflected in the curricula of geoscientific courses and in teaching. On the one hand, this provides students with a broad education in the geosciences and, on the other hand, gives them the opportunity to specialise individually according to their personal interests and strengths.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads

  • Special features regarding the equipment
    The institute has comprehensive and state-of-the-art technical and analytical equipment; interdepartmental laboratory association FIERCE - Frankfurt Isotope & Element Research Centre.
  • Special features regarding research activities
    The Institute of Geosciences is committed to inquiry-based teaching and learning. In all courses and geoscientific subdisciplines, students come into contact with current research topics. Within the framework of their theses, students work on current research projects and thus have an active part in the research activities at the Institute of Geosciences.
  • Other special features
    Due to the spatial and subject-related proximity of the natural science-oriented institutes of the Goethe University's Faculty 11 as well as the close connection of the Institute for Geosciences with the Senckenberg Research Institute, students benefit from an even greater subject breadth.
