Best 6 Master of Science Degrees in Earth Science 2019
An MSc in Earth Sciences is a degree that focuses in research of the different systems engaged in the Earth. Students will obtain research skills, knowledge and understanding of climatic consequences of interaction of different components and the interaction of the biosphere with the lithosphere, cryosphere and hydrosphere.
The Master in Geology – organized jointly by Ghent University and the Catholic University of Leuven – offers an in-depth training in general geology and a specialized tra
MSc Programs in Earth Science.
Our society is facing a number of key challenges, such as the sustainable use and management of the natural resources of our planet (water, soil, mineral resources and energy), and the protection of our population and infrastructure against the natural hazards (earthquakes, volcanic activity and climate change) that come with living on a dynamic planet.
For a geologist “global change” is a familiar topic, with a variety of facets. Our planet is an incredibly dynamic and perpetually changing system and unraveling it is one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century. To achieve this, a fundamental knowledge of the composition, structure, evolution and functioning of our planet is required....

The Mineral Resources MSc delivers knowledge and skills training essential to pursue a career in the mineral industry sector and to prepare students for PhD research. The course provides extensive training at the forefront of mineral resources, including industry-led workshops and field excursions.
The MSc in Mineral Resources is a full-time taught postgraduate programme run by the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences. Mineral resources are a part of almost everything surrounding our everyday life. Finding those resources is the job of economic geologists, multidisciplinary scientists who use geochemistry, mineralogy, geophysics, petrology and structural geology to understand, describe, and explore for mineral resources....

Remote Sensing and GIS
The importance of the spatial dimension in examining issues such as regional development, land use planning and environmental monitoring is widely recognized. In work of this kind, it is necessary to interrelate information derived from various sources such as census, maps, surveys, aerial photographs and satellite imagery, each of which may utilize a variety of methods for spatial referencing. The field of remote sensing deals with the science and technologies used to acquire aerial and satellite imagery, convert them into geographically located digital images and extract from them useful information about the surface including vegetation cover, the extent of urban areas and water bodies. ...

About Earth Sciences
At the graduate level, M.S. and Ph.D. degrees are awarded in Earth Sciences. Our graduate program encourages the academic and personal growth of students through coursework, research, and professional development opportunities. Students are encouraged to pursue graduate research in a wide range of typical disciplinary areas as well as interdisciplinary studies. Our program maintains its greatest strength in its research focus areas: Hazards, Active Tectonics & Dynamic Geomorphology, Geoarchaeology & Quaternary Studies, Hydrology & Water Resources, and Spatial & Community Analysis. Many aspects of the research we are known for taking advantage of our location along the Lower Mississippi River, which is both near the New Madrid Seismic Zone as well as the region where native American cultures thrived during the pre-Columbian era. However, our laboratory for field studies ranges across the globe....
Ghent University - Faculty of Bioscience Engineering
The International Master of Science in Soils and Global Change (IMSOGLO) programme aims at teaching the knowledge, tools, technologies and applications in the context of
Increased population pressure, industrialisation and intensive land use are causing depletion of natural resources and are limiting the performance of land with respect to its functions such as biomass production, carbon sequestration, water purification, etcetera. The additive effects of climate change and the above-mentioned aspects of global change influence the capacity of soils to regenerate and may even cause soil degradation.
The future capacity of soils to support (human) life is at stake. Programmes have been developed to protect the environment and to increase ecosystem resilience. Numerous directives on soil response to external pressures have been developed and implemented. A wealth of scientific knowledge is available but dispersed due to the specialisation of research groups, which makes it difficult for students to follow a focused curriculum on soils and global change at any individual university....
