Geology

The research in geology at UiT focuses mainly in fieldwork in Northern Norway, in climate and marine geology with research cruises in the polar areas.


We have unique geology right outside our doorstep, which give us a special understanding of the processes that shapes the earth. Close cooperation with the oil industry ensures relevant master projects for the market. The study consists of a master thesis (60 ECTS) and mandatory and optional subjects (60 ECTS). Number of optional subjects vary between the lines of study. One has the option to follow subjects at the University Centre of Svalbard (UNIS) or abroad. For more information, check our webpage.
