Doctoral studies

Doctoral studies at the department of geology

Faculty of Science, Department of Geology, organizes the doctoral study in geology following a long tradition of geology teaching and research at the University of Zagreb. Together with a number of renown research institutions in Croatia (Ruđer Bošković Institute (Zagreb, Rovinj), Institute for Oceanography and Fisheries (Split) and Institute for Marine and Coastal Research of University in Dubrovnik), it also organizes the doctoral study in oceanology, for which it has been a long-term coordinator.

Both doctoral programmes comprise two components: teaching and research under the supervision of mentors. They are organized so that the first (and partly the second) year of the studies relies on teaching, seminars and workshops, and in later years they are based on the scientific  research, which eventually results in the doctoral dissertation.
