Harz Mountains - In the first years of studying, students go on an excursion to the Harz Mountains, focusing on geology and field geochemistry. While in these mountains of central Germany, students work on their skills in geology, water chemistry, and regional environmental issues, specifically from the old mining operations. Students participate in a three days excursion, where they get to apply their knowledge in the field while hiking through the Harz Mountains.
Research Cruise North Sea - In the second years of studying, students go on an oceanographic and marine geoscience excursion to the north sea. The excursion to Helgoland provides students an excellent oppotunity to gain some practical hands-on experience. The students get to practice and train filed techniques in the geosciences while onboard.
Volcanism and Hydrochemistry in the Eifel - In the second years of studying, students participate in a four days fieldtrip to the Eifel area of western Germany, which is famous for its mantle xenoliths, its tertiary, quaternary volcanism, and its large variety of mineral springs. While in the Eifel area of western Germany, students work on their skills in the geosciences; volcanology, sedimentology, and water chemistry.
Environmental Changes and Challenges in Northewestern Germany - In the second years of studying, students participate in an excursion to Northwestern Germany to further expand their studies. The students get a unique chance to explore various environmental changes and challenges in Northwestern Germany.
