Study programmes at the Department of Geology

Undergraduate studies

Undergraduate, three-year programme in geology provides you with a broad interdisciplinary experience. Besides gaining the knowledge of fundamental geological processes, you also study physical, chemical and biological principles that govern the behaviour of our planet. At the end of each year, the time comes to get out of the classrooms and laboratories and practice the real geology in the field, from Slavonian Mountains to the beautiful karstic landscapes of External Dinarides. After finishing a small research project at the end of the third year and taking the final exam, you get the B.Sc. degree.
