The study of geophysics at the Faculty of Science takes three years (six semesters), with the total of 180 ECTS credits. It ends with the exams in all courses included in the program and collecting 180 ECTS credits.
The first two years are dedicated to building a strong backround in classical (general) physics and mathematics. Undergraduates of geophysics learn about the physical basis of geophysical disciplines that are nurtured in the Geophysical Institute (meteorology, physical oceanography, seismology and physics of the inner Earth), and skills needed for professional and technical work: conducting measurements, maintenance and calibration of instruments, data collection and their basic interpretation, routine analysis of geophysical series, data archiving and field work (e.g. macroseismic research).
