Bachelor programme Geosciences

Content and focus of the degree programme:

The degree programme is offered as a joint programme of the Karl-Franzens University Graz and the Graz University of Technology within the framework of the Natural Sciences Graz project. The aim of the bachelor's programme in geosciences is academic and practical pre-vocational education for the collection, analysis and interpretation of earth sciences processes and their interaction with the environment. In addition to general basics in chemistry, physics, mathematics, zoology and botany elementary knowledge in earth sciences in the subjects of geology, palaeontology, petrology, mineralogy, geochemistry and geophysics is taught on one hand and on the other hand a specialisation in subjects of applied earth sciences is offered. In the bachelor's programme basic knowledge as a basis for continuing scientific research at universities, research institutions and museums is imparted in all subdisciplines of earth sciences and basic skills for many occupations, e.g. in the building sector, environmental economics, water management or the extractive industry are acquired.

Definition of the field of studies

The discipline of Geosciences includes different scientific sub-areas, all dealing with the system earth, and serves to impart basic knowledge in mineralogy, petrology, geology and palaeontology.


The bachelor's programme in Geosciences consists of one stage of study and is structured in a modular way. These modules are: introduction phase (basics of earth sciences), general basics of natural sciences, subject-specific basics, geology, petrology, palaeontology, mineralogy and applied earth sciences. Courses and examinations may also be held in English. Students can write their bachelor's thesis in English. A study period abroad of one semester between the third and fifth semester is appreciated by the universities.
