Geology Studies

Stud Bild

The study of geology at the University of Salzburg introduces the structures, characteristics, formation conditions, and formation processes of the solid Earth and its components - rocks and minerals - and provides scientific training in the professional fields of geology. In line with this objective and the international trend, the study programme follows a three-tier university system (Bachelor - Master - Doctor). The study of geology is divided into a six-semester bachelor´s degree and a four-semester master's program.
