Study plan - Bachelor's programme in Geology and Geohazards
Upon completion of the program, the candidate will:
- Have basic insights into bedrock and deposits.
- Understand various geological processes that shape the landscape and that are active in the Earth's interior.
- Have knowledge of different types of geohazards and how these can be discovered and monitored using modern technology.
- Have knowledge of how climate change affects erosion processes and the frequency of floods and landslides.
- Have knowledge of what characterizes a scientific source.
- Be able to carry out a geological survey.
- Be able to use modern methods such as GIS, GPS and geophysical methods (e.g. georadar, 2D resistivity and seismic analysis)
- Be able to carry out project work including data collection and interpretation and prepare written reports.
- Should master reference handling, citation techniques and source criticism.
The candidate should be able to investigate a current geological process in a scientific manner, to carry out mapping of geological formations and investigate problems related to geohazards such as mass movements (in rock, deposits and snow), unstable ground, floods.
