2020, April 1 - 10:07am

The main goal is training for careers at companies and science laboratories connected with aquaculture, as well as highly specialized administrative staff taking care of aquaculture business.

Students develop knowledge and practical skills during classes of biology, physiology of breeding organisms (fish, invertebrates and algae), food processing and aquaculture products. The content of education also includes legal aspects of aquaculture and the basics of business management. The course is practical and students acquire their first professional experiences during two 7-week internships in companies connected with broadly defined aquaculture.

Study in Polish or in English.

Studies in the field of Geography are based on lectures and laboratory classes in well-equipped classrooms and computer labs. Additionally, the program includes 270 hours of practical classes in the field. Most fieldwork takes place in the Limnological Station in Borucino, which enables students to acquire skills in using modern measuring equipment.

Students develop knowledge and practical skills during classes of physical geography, socio-economic geography, hydrology, meteorology and climatology, geomorphology, Geographical Information Systems, management and protection of the environment, etc.

Study in Polish.

The graduates will acquire detailed knowledge of geology and related sciences enabling understanding of geological processes and phenomena. The acquired skills will enable performing, supervising and documenting geological works. In addition, the graduates will be skilled in use of computer techniques, in the creation of databases and geological modelling.

The study program covers general issues, e.g. physical geology, applied geology, regional geology, historical geology, geomorphology, tectonics, mineralogy, petrography, etc. More specialized classes cover seabed geology, sedimentology, chemistry suspensions and protection of coasts. Field classes include geological mapping, identification of geomorphological landforms, etc.

Study in Polish.

Profile of courses is practical. We offer the whole semester of trainings in companies related to water management. Internships are thematically related to diploma thesis. Students learn about natural water cycle, monitoring methods, comprehensive management of water resources in Poland and Europe, management methods of protection process. In addition, they get training in hydrological, hydrochemical and hydrobiological measurements in the field, laboratory methods, creating hydrological records, assessing water resources and forecasting water supply, assessing the economic value of biotic and abiotic resources of the waters.

The program is divided into eight thematic modules: I - Basic Courses; II - Specialized subjects; III - Monitoring and modelling of environmental phenomena; IV - Legal, social and economic aspects; V - Environmental Engineering; VI - Water resources and their protection; VII – Internship, and VIII - Classes in English. Leading subjects: hydrology, meteorology and climatology, water management, socio-economic aspects of water management, coastal protection, bioindication and biomonitoring of water.

Study in Polish with selected classes in English.

Oceanography at the University of Gdańsk is a unique field of study in Poland. The highest quality of education is ensured by a wide range of educational offer, well-equipped teaching base, participation in European programs and activities of the Marine Station in Hel. Students attend classes and conduct research on the specialized research vessel OCEANOGRAF, one of the most modern units in the world.

The study program includes general lectures in the three basic fields: biological oceanography, physical oceanography, and chemical oceanography. Specialized courses include marine biology and ecology – resources and ecosystems, marine biotechnology, marine chemistry and atmosphere, satellite oceanography, marine dynamics, marine acoustics and optics, geophysics, marine geology and geomorphology, geodynamics and coastal zone hydrodynamics,  stratigraphy of marine  sediments and broadly understood human impact in marine areas. A specific form of classes are field exercises covering activities in the sea and the coastal zone.

The interdisciplinary education takes place in two fields of specialization:

  • biological oceanography (studies in Polish)
  • geological- physical-chemical oceanography (studies in Polish).
