We believe that you know best what you want to learn in order to be optimally prepared for your future as a geoscientist. Therefore, the curriculum for the Master in Earth Sciences at the University of Innsbruck is designed to be as flexible as possible.

In the course of 4 semesters, courses totaling 120 ECTS points must be completed. Of these, only 40 ECTS must be completed in the form of compulsory modules. These mainly focus on your own research in the context of your Master's thesis.

The remaining 80 ECTS points can be freely chosen from a wide pool of elective modules according to your personal interests. To support you, we have created four specializations that provide a thematic guideline. Full specialization or "a little bit of everything"? You decide for yourself. 

The complete version of the curriculum including a description of the learning objectives of the individual modules can be found here.



In principle, the language of teaching is German. However, the field of geosciences is increasingly international and English as a technical language is more important than ever. Many modules will therefore be held in English.
