The Master Degree course in “Planet Sciences”
This course trains high-level scientists through an approach combining fundamental disciplines and different specialties of geosciences (geophysics, geology, atmospheric, ocean and climate sciences, biogeochemistry). This training is limited to around 20 students per promotion. The Master’s courses are taught in collaboration with MINES ParisTech, the Observatoire de Paris, EPHE and ESPCI Paris within the Paris Sciences Lettres environment.

The courses benefit from the proximity of the two research laboratories of the Department of Geosciences. Each semester, the educational path of each student is carefully discussed and followed by a tutor chosen from among researchers from the Department of Geosciences. Field internships and experimental internships deepen the understanding of the phenomena and processes taught. In the second semester of the M1 Master, a research internship abroad gives an opening to international research.
Some of the students resulting from the training will pursue a doctoral thesis and then move on to a career in research and higher education. A growing number of students will seek careers in large companies, private or public.
The Department supports, during the 2nd and 3rd year, its students wishing to take the Agrégation (at the end of the M2), by offering them adapted courses.
