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