Top Masters of Science (MScs) in Earth Science in Europe 2019
Topics in the Earth sciences range considerably, from examinations of the composition of the planet's core to the study of the outermost borders of the atmosphere. Students investigating these topics should expect to graduate with a deeper understanding of the physical characteristics of the Earth.
Europe, one of the world's seven continents, is usually known as the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia. Second smallest continent, with 10,180,000 (km2), the area regroups 50 countries.

Top MSc Programs in Earth Science in Europe 2019.
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....

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....
