Study Contents of the Masters

Geological phenomena intervene with human living and humans foster geological alternations. But how do geology and society interrelate? And how can we comprehend these interrelations? The Master of Geoarchaeology combines both the social and life sciences. Thus, you take courses in soil science, geo-ecology, human geography or satellite imaging. You learn how to excavate, map or analyse landscapes. Moreover, you will deal with modern approaches such as sustainability studies within the subject of environmental planning. However, cultural studies and foreign languages also comprise a significant part of your Masters studies.

As one would expect, the Master of Geoarchaeology carries an international character with it. Most universities offer semesters abroad in their curricula, some even require them in the study period.
