About

The course provides advanced knowledge in any of the research areas of marine sciences.
The course can be used in a bachelor´s degree in marine sciences and
the student can choose a project focusing on oceanography, biology,
chemistry, or geology. The student carries out a supervised independent
scientific project that may consist of experimental work or the analysis
and evaluation of existing scientific data. The finished work is
presented in writing in the form of a scientific report and an oral
presentation.

The work can be done at the Department of Marine Sciences, at another
institution in a relevant discipline, or externally at a company,
institution or authority, and is supervised by scientifically trained
researchers. To be registered on the course requires an approved
individual study plan. The degree course may also, in agreement with the
institution, be registered as 30 credits.

As a student, you have the responsibility to find a supervisor and
contact an examiner before being accepted to the course. In connection
with these contacts, you should show that you have taken the courses
required for the subject area. Choice of project assignment is done in a
discussion with the examiner and the supervisor. The date for starting
the course is also decided in the discussions with subject examiner and
supervisor. For project suggestions see the project catalogue.
