Students will be educated and prepared for theirfuture research in physical oceanographic or other climate sciences.
The Institut für Meereskunde at University Hamburg offers a master degree (MSc) in Physical Oceanography. The research oriented 4 semester course is directed to students with B.Sc. degree in physical oceanography, meteorology, geophysics, physics or equivalent and provides profound knowledge on the physics of the ocean and its role in the climate system. Students will be educated and prepared for theirfuture research in physical oceanographic or other climate sciences.Furthermore,
students are trainedto the ability to autonomously implement and broaden scientific findings, methods and skills.
The MSc-master degree course Physical Oceanography is divided into two terms of one year each which comprise a technical deepening phase and a research phase. During the technical deepening phase, oceanographic expertise in theoretical and regional oceanography will be developed, methods and skills are trained in practical lab courses and excercises.
The research phase is meant to deepen the autonomous scientific working and to provide ground for the following master thesis work. The work load amounts up to an average of 30 credit points per term (about 20 contact hours of courses).
In the Master Survey you can get an overview regarding the individual modules of the master degree course; in the description you receive information about the contents related to it.You can also check out the subject-specific regulations.
