The Earth and Environmental Sciences (EES) programme is an interdisciplinary environmental science course of study, providing an understanding of the natural functioning of our planet and the consequences of human impact. It combines traditional geoscience disciplines like geochemistry, geophysics, and oceanography with environmental sciences and social sciences.
EES prepares our graduates for topical challenges and research questions such as the management and sustainable exploration of natural resources as well as the study of Earth's climate and oceans. Participation in field and laboratory work as well as teamwork in multidisciplinary and multicultural groups are important parts of this programme.
