Course description

The English master's program is structured into various subjects, each comprising different modules. In the Geophysics track, the first year emphasizes modules such as Seismometry, Signal Processing and Seismogram Analysis (22 CP), and Theory and Inversion of Seismic Waves (18 CP). Alongside these mandatory courses, you have the opportunity to tailor your studies through compulsory electives (16 CP total). These electives allow you to delve deeper into geophysics or explore related disciplines. Additionally, you can choose interdisciplinary qualifications or soft skills worth 4 CP. In the third semester, you will engage in compulsory modules like the Scientific Focusing Phase (10 CP), Scientific Seminars (4 CP), and Introduction to Scientific Practice (16 CP). This period is dedicated to thematic specialization and honing your scientific practice skills, laying the groundwork for your master's thesis (30 CP), which you will undertake in the final, fourth semester.
