International Master in Geosciences: Palaeobiology

Programme structure

The programme consists of two majors:

Palaeobiology – which provides theoretical framework in macroevolution, ecology, palaeoenvironmental reconstruction and statistical analysis

Earth Systems Research Lab – which consists of individual field- and specimen-based projects and provides students with skills such as preparation of funding applications, scientific writing and communication, as well as environmental and geochemical background for interdisciplinary cooperations

Programme structure

Programme structure. SSC – supplementary courses, KQ – key qualifications

SSC and KQ include language and soft skills courses offered by the University, field excursions, internships, or even involvement in the University structures, e.g. as tutors for new students or student representatives in committees. To students not experienced with statistics and the R software, we recommend a two week intensive course “Computing and data analysis in Geosciences”, which is recognised as SSC.

The major in Palaeobiology can be also combined with a minor in another field within the Master in Geoscience programme offered at FAU, such as applied sedimentology or petrology, but these are currently offered only in German.
