The Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), Israel is inviting applications from international students for the M.Sc. in Earth and Environmental Sciences for its Fall 2023 session.
The M.Sc. program at the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences is a research degree with a thesis, designed to impart research skills and professional competence in a variety of fields in geology, earth and environmental science. The disciplines studied in this department enable a deeper understanding of the processes operating on and beneath the surface of the Earth. Study and research facilities in earth dynamics, geochemistry, micropaleontology, engineering geology, and field measurements are cutting-edge.
The program is subject to rules and regulations set by the Faculty of Natural Sciences, including the awarding of credit points and eligibility for scholarships and teaching assistantships.
