OBJECTIVES

Presentation

Do you have a background in sciences (mathematics, physics or earth sciences) and a sensitivity for the coast?
The Master’s degree in Environmental Sciences teaches you to understand complex research or social issues related to the integrated management of natural and coastal areas in particular.

The Coastal Geosciences and Geophysics (GGL) course provides you with fundamental theoretical and practical skills in terrestrial and marine geophysics, geodesy, marine geology and coastal oceanography.
You will be trained in the deployment of geophysical instruments on land and at sea, data acquisition, scientific calculation, modelling and digital data processing to provide answers to a problem in the coastal physical environment.

This course trains you to a rigorous reasoning, based on a state of current knowledge about the coastline. You will be able to carry out an interdisciplinary reflection, establish a diagnosis and propose and/or simulate possible evolutions in order to meet societal demands in the coastal domain.
