Degree Project Catalogue

The Degree Project Catalogue is a catalogue of suggestions on Degree Projects for Bachelor's and Master's levels at the Department of Marine Sciences. Here you will find projects within Marine Biology, Marine Chemistry, Marine Geology, Oceanography, and also Interdisciplinary projects.

About Degree Project Catalogue

  • Projects are presented by subject
  • Each project is presented on a web page.
  • Each project has a contact person, whom you can contact for more information about the project.
  • Degree projects at the Department of Marine Sciences are done independently and must be written and assessed individually.


Contact person for the Degree Project Catalogue is Bastien Queste, Assistant Senior Lecturer in Oceanography. Email:
