Masters degree

Doctorate degree

The doctorate degree conferred in the Earth Sciences in Germany is a "Doctor rerum naturalium (Dr. rer.nat.)" (LMU & TUM) or "Doktor-Ingenieur (Dr.-Ing.)" (TUM only), as opposed to the internationally familiar "Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)". The degree itself can be taken in any of the subdisciplines offered at LMU or TUM. Funding is available from the German Research Foundation and special programs, e.g. the International Graduate School "THESIS" of the Elite Network of Bavaria. More information: LMU & TUM.
