Within programmes, the Earth is explored - landmasses, oceans and atmosphere, continuing the study of how we interact with its resources and the current and possible future consequences of society’s behaviour.

The Department of Earth Sciences has a long tradition of educating earth scientists and physical and cultural geographers who crucial and desired in today’s labor market. We strive to tie our programmes to current research and studies for a sustainable future.
