Do you want to take part in the management of our water or study how to meet water-related disasters? Are you interested in water chemistry and its interplay with the environment? In this specialisation you combine studies in hydrological processes such as runoff, ground water formation and flow as well as how we use water resources and human-water interactions.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
The specialisation in Hydrology/Hydrogeology, within the Master’s Programme in Earth Science, focuses on processes relating to water at or near the Earth’s surface and the water-human interaction. The programme combines advanced courses on fundamental hydrological processes, and the modelling of groundwater and surface water with hydrochemistry and field methods. It also provides a good foundation in management of water resources in our society.
During the programme you can expect to:
- take part in the management of our water or study how to meet water-related disasters
- combine studies in hydrological processes as well as how we use water resources and human-water interactions
- learn GIS and numerical modelling to address complex hydrological problems
The Department of Earth Sciences at Uppsala University is one of the most comprehensive academic departments of its kind in Europe. Research in Earth science focuses on subjects that range from the Earth’s core to the atmosphere, on scales from sub-microscopic minerals and fossils to the formation of mountains and oceans, and in time from the formation of the Earth to the processes currently reshaping the planet.
You have a strong foundation in Earth science and during your Bachelor’s degree you gained some experience doing field work as well as analysing your data in a laboratory. You probably have taken a methodology course and have a naturally analytical attitude that allows you to apply your theoretical knowledge to solve problems.
You can critically analyse and reflect on problems and are creative and innovative enough to come up with your own ideas. Therefore you expect to contribute as much to the educational experience of others as you expect to learn from their experience and knowledge.
A future PhD education is a possibility you might have thought about and would value an opportunity to get in closer contact with current research by working in a research group while doing your Master’s degree.
The programme leads to a Master of Science (120 credits) with Earth Science as the main field of study.
A Bachelor’s degree, equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen, from an internationally recognised university.
Also required is:
- 90 credits in earth science and 15 credits in mathematics; or
- 90 credits in technology/engineering or physics and 30 credits in earth science or environmental science.
All applicants need to verify English language proficiency that corresponds to English studies at upper secondary (high school) level in Sweden (“English 6”). This can be done in a number of ways, including through an internationally recognised test such as TOEFL or IELTS, or through previous upper secondary (high school) or university studies.
The minimum test scores are:
- IELTS: an overall mark of 6.5 and no section below 5.5
- TOEFL: Paper-based: Score of 4.5 (scale 1–6) in written test and a total score of 575. Internet-based: Score of 20 (scale 0–30) in written test and a total score of 90
- Cambridge: CAE, CPE
Selection: Students are selected based on:
- a total appraisal of quantity and quality of previous university studies; and
- a statement of purpose (1 page).
