MSc in Geology

Charles University Faculty of Science
Campus Full time 2 years October 2019 Czech Republic Prague

Geology is dealing with processes in the Earth's interior, formation and evolution of rocks and their interactions with other spheres of the planet Earth. The students are formed in scientific work focused on the detailed knowledge of the rock environments, their geological composition, and interactions with the atmosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere including processes leading to migration of substances in these environments. [+]

Applied Geology

Applied Geology is focused on the application of hydrogeological, engineering-geological and geophysical methods in solving practical problems and research related to the geological environment. It deals with the search and exploitation of water resources, mineral resources, and geothermal energy, the survey related to the storage of radioactive waste and geological storage of CO2. Methods of Applied Geology are also used in the analysis of geological and environmental factors and risks assessment. Some of those factors are associated with global climate change. Typical tasks include the stabilization of landslides and other slope movements, floods, quality and quantity of drinking water, radon risk, seismicity, etc.... [-]


MSc in Geography

Charles University Faculty of Science
Campus Full time 2 years October 2019 Czech Republic Prague

A graduate is endowed with a comprehensive knowledge of the development of natural sphere generally, social structures and processes and their impact on the landscape and the ways of its use. A graduate is able to analyze, evaluate and interpret landscape changes; formulate appropriate conclusions and strategies based on theories and methods used in geoecology, human geography, historiography, and regional development. A graduate is ready to work for private, profitable public, state and international institutions dealing with the landscape both in the project and decisive spheres (physical and strategic planning, nature conservation), and to get involved as in basic as in applied research (doctoral studies, academic and commercial spheres). [+]

Master's degree program is based on modern knowledge of a number of scientific disciplines dealing with the landscape, its forces, dynamics, and interactions. That represents the intersection of disciplines enabling to deepen the foundations of scientific (physical geography and geo-ecology, geology, biology), technical (cartography, geo-informatics, remote sensing) and social disciplines (social geography, sociology, history, and law). The aim is to obtain theoretical and practical skills to capture the landscape and its folders, work with them using GIS, remote sensing, aerial imagery, modeling. Lectures are carried out in the Czech language with the use of Czech and foreign (mostly English language) literature, one lecture (Heritage of Cultural Landscapes) will be carried out in English. To enrich learning activities, foreign guests working at our workplaces on regular basis will be involved. Teaching in some subjects will be designed in a way that final evaluation of the student consists of a scientific performance on the international stage, including the presentation in English. The best graduates of the follow-up master's program will be able to continue in doctoral programs.“General Questions of Geography” previously accredited is a follow-up to a large extent. Graduates should find their place as in basic as in applied research, in decisive and project spheres.... [-]


MSc in Demography

Charles University Faculty of Science
Campus Full time 2 years October 2019 Czech Republic Prague

A graduate of the Master's program in demography may subsequently pursue subject-related study towards a doctoral degree. Further opportunities for graduates exist in both research and professional work. Among potential workplaces of interest to graduates are scientific research institutes which deal with a wide array of human or human population studies, ranging from socio-economic studies to medical and anthropological research. Graduates work as demographic experts at all levels of government, from local authorities (municipal or regional) to national (state authorities, government ministries, or state statistical services), as well as in the private sector, ranging from opinion polling firms, to departments of marketing, human resources, and advertising of large corporations.

MSc in Chemistry

Charles University Faculty of Science
Campus Full time 2 years October 2019 Czech Republic Prague

The graduate from the MSc. study of Analytical Chemistry has passed the demanding theoretical and practical training and is capable of independent solving of problems connected with the qualitative and quantitative analysis of samples of any material. He/she has mastered the strategy of the process of analysis and is able to propose and realize effectively the solution of given analytical task. [+]

Analytical Chemistry

Analytical chemistry is a scientific discipline which develops and applies methods, measuring techniques and strategies for obtaining information on the chemical composition of a defined part of the real world, on the changes of this composition in time and on the spatial distribution of chemical species. It intensely cooperates with the other chemical disciplines and with other important scientific fields, e.g., medicine, pharmacy, forensic studies, or ecology. The study of analytical chemistry obeys the recommendations by the Division of Analytical Chemistry (DAC) of the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuCheMS). It covers mastering of the theoretical background, practical training in the traditional methods of chemical analysis, in modern methods of instrumental analysis and in chemometry, complemented by general information on measuring methodology, on the systems of securing the quality of products, on multidimensional techniques and on continuous monitoring of industrial processes and of processes occurring in living organisms and in the environment....

MSc in Biology

Charles University Faculty of Science
Campus Full time 2 years October 2019 Czech Republic Prague

The graduate has a general knowledge of structures and biological processes in the plant cell and body - architecture, metabolism, ontogenesis, and its regulation, and interaction of the plant with the environment. The graduate can pursue his studies at the postgraduate level and continue in research work on the experimental biology of plants. Knowledge of plant physiology is applicable in practically-focused fields like agronomy, horticulture and breeding, forestry, Phytopathology, plant biotechnology, ecology, and environmental protection, or in biology education at secondary schools (pedagogical training also needed). General practical experience in microscopic, biochemical and molecular biological methods and a general biological knowledge enable work in other fields of biology, in a specialized commodity trade or in state administration. [+]

Animal Physiology

Animal physiology graduate students have advanced knowledge of animal and human biology, including a thorough knowledge of body structure and functions. They are especially familiar with integrative physiological functions of the whole organism and their regulations, as well as with the basic molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying complex physiological processes. A broad theoretical knowledge complemented by useful methodological experience and practical skills gained by laboratory training and experimental work on master thesis project provides an excellent background for professional success of the graduates in both basic and applied research. Graduates of the master level of animal physiology have a good command of the general principles of scientific work and they can continue in doctoral study programs.... [-]
