Master´s Degree Project in Geology, 45 ECTS credits

If you are planning to do a Master's degree project you need to approach one or several of our teachers whose research is in line with your interests within the field of geology. You should do this well in advance of the start of your project for discussions about possible tasks. Alternatively, you can approach an external partner, for example to perform a project of applied character at a private company or an authority. When you have got such an offer you need to be given a main supervisor at the Department of Geology. IMPORTANT: In the latter case you have to contact the course coordinator (Director of studies) who assigns a supervisor to you. You should not try to find an internal supervisor yourself.

Note that you need to apply for admission to the course GEOR02 through during the study term before you plan to start your Master's degree project (at the latest by 15 April or 15 October, respectively). Contact the Director of studies if you have questions related to this.  For more information, see the instructions document below.
