Studies in the field of Geography are based on lectures given by experts in their field, auditorium and laboratory classes in well-equipped classrooms and a computer lab. Additionally, the program of first tier study includes 270 hours, and the program of the second tier 60 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.

Subjects are: - Fundamentals of physical geography; Basics of socio-economic geography; Hydrology with oceanography; Meteorology and climatology; Geomorphology; Development and protection of the environment; Social Geography; Economic Geography; Geography of the settlement; Geographical Information Systems.

Education in Physical geography and geoinformation science provides interdisciplinary knowledge about global environmental changes, and skills to investigate these changes using modern geoinformation tools. The teaching is done by the scientific staff of the Institute of Geography and the GIS Center, and supported by cooperating commercial companies, such as Jeppesen A Boeing Company. Students use well-equipped classrooms and computer labs.

The program includes issues related to contemporary climate and environmental changes, extreme natural phenomena, data processing and visualization, statistical methods, geoinformation in environmental monitoring, labs related to GIS tools. An integral part of the study program is summer school - Interdisciplinary research on the environmental change, and professional practices.

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 specialized courses in the fields of: marine biology, marine biotechnology, protection and management of marine resources, ecophysiology, marine mammals, marine fish, marine geology, coastal zone and seabed geomorphology, chemistry of the sea and the atmosphere, dynamics and marine physics. 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, specializations: marine biology (studies in Polish), protection and management of marine resources (studies in Polish), marine biotechnology (studies in Polish or English),
  • geological-physical-chemical oceanography, specializations: marine geology (studies in Polish), chemistry of the sea and the atmosphere (studies in Polish), marine physics (studies in Polish).
