Take your chance

If you are an undergraduate student, interested in and excited about geoscience, enjoy getting out into the field, and want to undertake international travel and cross-cultural experience as part of your degree, check out the two new Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree opportunities available through the UM Department of Geoscience.  Both degree opportunities are offered in collaboration with European institutions and both require UM students to spend one year of study abroad.

Opportunity #1:

Dual B.S. degree in International Field Geoscience, offered by UM and the University of Potsdam in Potsdam, Germany.

Opportunity #2:

Joint B.S. degree in International Field Geosciences, offered by UM and University College Cork in Cork, Ireland.

Both variations of the International Field Geoscience (IFG) degree provide students with a strong foundation in geosciences and allied sciences, while integrating a component of language training and cultural competency into the curriculum.  The required curriculum involves substantial field-based learning both in North America and Europe.  Degree-seeking students have opportunities to engage in a wide variety of field-based classes across the geosciences and on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.
