The study consists of a Master's Thesis (60 ECTS) as well as mandatory and optional subjects (60 ECTS). The number of optional subjects varies between the study lines. You can either follow subjects at The University Centre in Svalbard, elsewhere in Norway or abroad.
There are four lines of study:
- Structural Geology, Petrology and Ore Geology
- Marine Geology and Geophysics
- Sedimentology and Quaternary Geology
- Petroleum Geoscience
The research undertaken in geology at UiT Arctic University of Norway focuses mainly on fieldwork in Northern Norway, in climate and marine geology with research cruises in the polar areas. We have unique geology right on our doorstep, which offers a special understanding of the processes that continue to shape the earth. Close cooperation with e.g. industry, the public sector and other research institutions ensures that you as a M. Sc. student gain experience in fields relevant for the job market.
