Graduate academic research program: Master of Physics-Geophysics


The study of physics-geophysics at the Faculty of Science takes two years (four semesters), with the total of 120 ECTS credits. The requirement for admission is completed the appropriate undergraduate or integrated university study that provides for the acquisition of appropriate competencies required for the MA program in physics-geophysics. Applicants evaluate these competencies by examining the curriculum completion of undergraduate or integrated studies. If necessary, students take supplementary courses.

The programme itself is unique in that it insists on a relatively broad general geophysical education before specialization by individual professions. Thus, the programme of the first semester is identical for all students, and in the second semester students have the option to choose one of two available directions: meteorology and physical oceanography and seismology and physics of solid Earth. The study is completed by passing the graduation exam, which consists of two parts: assessment of geophysical courses according to the list of test questions to be determined at the beginning of the academic year and the defense of thesis where the student access after successfully passing the first exam. Graduate study programme in physics-geophysics offers a thorough theoretical and practical knowledge of basic geophysical fields (meteorology, physical oceanography, seismology, geomagnetism and aeronomy) and the ability to start scientific research in the area of selected disciplines, as well as the enrolment of doctoral study.
