Are you curious about solving various geological problems by utilizing ICP-MS methods?
This course examines geological problems on a deeper level and allows students to develop research strategies for geochemistry.
This course provides experience with a variety of analytical instruments used in geochemistry and take advantage of facilities (e.g. laser ablation ICP-MS) available at the Department of Earth Sciences.
The course is part of the Master’s Programme in Earth Sciences, the course is also offered as a freestanding course.
The teaching consists of:
- group exercises
- laboratory work
Language of instruction: English
The teaching is carried out by dedicated teachers who are researchers in the field. The course has a strong research and labor market connection, which you as a student will benefit from.
Prerequisites and selection
For admittance to the course requires 165 credits in completed courses within Earth Sciences, including GVG380 Geochemistry with at least 90% with passing grades and English B/English 6 or an international language test, for example TOEFL, IELTS.
Selection is based upon the number of credits from previous university studies, maximum 165 credits.
If you study Earth Science, you have good career opportunities both in Sweden and abroad. You can choose to work in industry, as a consultant, project manager or in public administration.
Our former students work, for example, with natural resource management, environmental issues and urban planning, you also have great opportunities to focus on the particular area you are interested in.
If you are studying Earth Sciences at the University of Gothenburg, there are good opportunities for exchange studies during your studies. This is often seen as a good asset when applying for jobs, as many jobs require international collaboration.
We have over 100 agreements within Erasmus and other exchange programs with universities around the world, both within and outside Europe.
