Courses and programmes
Our educations cover wide aspects of Earth Sciences, Geography, Physical Geography and Biology-Earth Sciences. We have courses and study programmes at bachelor's, master's and PhD level. Find the education for you!
Our master's programmes are focused on climate change, environmental management, GIS and remote sensing, glaciology and polar environments, land- and water resources, landscape ecology and landscape analysis.
We offer five international master's programmes. They comprise 120 credits, corresponding to two years of full-time studies. Read more about each programme below.
Environmental Management and Physical Planning
The programme focuses on environmental science and physical planning. It provides students with a systems perspective on environmental issues, focusing on planning processes, international and transboundary issues, and practical training in tools such as systems analysis.
Geomatics with Remote Sensing and GIS
This programme will develop students’ skills in several fields, for example, photogrammetry, remote sensing, GIS as well as methods for modelling, explorative data analysis and visualisation with a focus on landscape information.
Hydrology, Hydrogeology and Water Resources
Note: The Master's Programme will not start in the autumn semester 2022.
Many environmental risks and societal concerns are directly related to the way we manage our land and water environments. This programme provides extended knowledge about water and soil systems, including pollution spreading and associated risks for society.
Polar Landscapes and Quaternary Climate
Analyzing the Earth’s landscapes, landforms, and sediments, you learn about climate and environmental changes and acquire useful transferable skills. Allows for specializations towards glaciology and polar environments, and climate reconstruction and modelling.
Freestanding courses at Master's (advanced) level
Most of our courses at master’s level (advanced level) are offered as freestanding courses.
Before applying for such a course, it is especially important to check the entry requirements. All our advanced level courses require knowledge in English equivalent to Swedish upper secondary school course English 6. For more information about our courses please see ”Find your course or programme” further down this page or,
Studying for a PhD gives you the opportunity to really dive into a subject, conduct independent research, and share your new research results and knowledge in a dissertation.
Bachelor's Programmes, in Swedish
We offer three bachelor’s programmes, all in collaboration with other departments and our focus is Earth sciences (geosciences), physical geography where a central theme is sustainability.
Only in Swedish:
Bachelor's Programme in Earth Science, Distance Learning, in English
Freestanding courses at Bachelor's (first) level
We offer several distance learning courses (taught in English) as freestanding courses. These courses are also given within the Bachelor's Programme in Earth Science, distance learning. For more information about our courses please see ”Find your course or programme” further down this page or,
