Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.
Geographic sciences is a discipline that deals with the study of planet Earth and its many features. Students who study this field can learn about the planet and how humans live on it, in addition to the technology used for analyzing data.
Master's Program in Geographic Sciences
The Master's Programme in Geology and Geophysics trains you to address pressing questions concerning our home planet's evolution, its role as the source of raw materials needed by modern civilisation, and environmental issues. [+]
These programmes enable you to conduct in-depth research into a science, technological or social science focused aspect of geography. [+]
These programmes enable you to conduct in-depth research into a science, technological or social science focused aspect of geography.
They are aimed at students who wish to focus primarily on achieving a research-based masters-level qualification.
With close support and guidance from subject-specialist academics, MRes students typically conduct in-depth research into a social science aspect of geography, while (Sc) MRes students focus on a scientific or technological aspect of geography. It may be possible to upgrade to a PhD at the discretion of the school.
You will benefit from being part of a world-leading, research-intensive school, spending time on a topic of your choice while enhancing your research skills and subject expertise.... [-]
Environmental Geosciences graduates will gain the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge of Earth sciences, specifically in the field of geology, environmental geochemistry (e.g., environmental contamination), environmental hydrogeology and paleoecology (e.g., global climate development). [+]
The objective of this master is to provide solid scientific training in techniques of Earth observation, and the generation and analysis of information for the study of the territory and the management of their resources through GIS. It is a 60 ECTS Master is structured in 4 compulsory modules, an optional module for advanced training (to choose between two possible) and finally Work Master's Thesis. All classes are conducted with computer. The course is complemented by practical tutoring sessions, seminars and possible visits to organizations in the sector. [+]
The Masters of Technology in Geomatics is a field with ancient roots, modern relevance, and an eye to the future. [+]
Earth science deals with complex systems and processes that shape our planet. Pressing issues such as the safe supply of water, resources and energy, climate change, sea level rise as well as natural hazards are all intimately related to Earth sciences. The Master of Earth Sciences provides the opportunity to gain a wide range of knowledge and skills that are relevant for employment in industry, government agencies, education as well as further university studies. [+]
The Master in Geography and Spatial Planning is designed to respond to the growing need for highly qualified experts that can embrace the multi- dimensionality and complexity of the evolution of cities and regions, reflecting global changes and local dynamics. [+]

IMACS is an integrated Master of Science designed by 4 institutions with a wide range of leadership in clay science. [+]
The Master’s Programme in Economic Geology is offered by Oulu Mining School, with extensive international linkages. The programme will be taught entirely in English and comprises 22 modules, including courses in magmatic, hydrothermal and sedimentary ore deposits, structural geology for economic geologists, mining geology, geometallurgy, sampling methods, GIS applications, as well as environmental geochemistry. [+]
The study in this field is predominantly focused on the education of the engineers in applied geology (hydrology, engineering geology, technical mineralogy and petrography, environmental geochemistry, economy geology, drilling exploration and applied geophysics). [+]
The Master of Space Studies programme is designed to prepare scientists to respond to a myriad of challenges and opportunities. In addition to coursework in space sciences, the curriculum is enriched by a Master's thesis and a series of guest lecturers from international, national and regional institutions. [+]

Master in Transport and Geoinformation TechnologyThe creation and support of a sustainable and prosperous society involves more than just developing new technologies and acting sustainably as individuals. The process demands that we also understand how technologies are adopted and propagated, how our daily activities are affected by new policies and technologies, how these changes interact and spread across space, and how all of these efforts lead to change in the cities and regions around us. Programme outlineThe Master’s programme combines two closely related aspects of the built environment: Transport Systems and Geoinformation Technologies. In Transport Systems, we focus on analysing the movement of people and goods through space, and on planning, designing, constructing and operating the systems that accommodate these flows. Geoinformation Technology deals with acquisition, analysis, storage, visualisation and utilisation of geospatial data using information technology.The programme enables students to either specialise in one of these main subjects, or develop their own interdisciplinary study plan, making use of each student’s unique background and interests.Degree projectIn the degree project, students apply their acquired knowledge and skills to solving scientific problems in the main subject areas of the programme. They conduct independent investigations characterised by critical analysis and synthesis; they learn how to analyse, formulate and define scientific problems, find and evaluate possible solutions and finally present the results in a thesis. In addition, students will gain practical training in scientific communication and presentation, both orally and in written form.The degree project may be carried out at KTH or in a... [-]
This master's degree has three main areas: research into human palaeoecology and prehistory, palaeoanthropology, geology and palaeoontology of the Quaternary; archaeological intervention; and the management, conservation and socialisation of archaeological heritage. It shares objectives and educational activities with the degrees in History and Anthropology and Human Evolution through introductory subjects to... [+]
The Interuniversity Master's Degree in Geoinformatics by the Universities of Vigo and A Coruña was born as a title of high specialization to train professionals oriented to the market of the geospatial industry. [+]
