A variety of undergraduate courses are taught by the group. These include lecture courses such as Sedimentary and Structural Geology, General Geosciences, Marine and Applied Geophysics, Geographic Information Systems. The field and practical courses include the first and second year undergraduate excursions to Heligoland and marine excursions on the Research Vessel Heincke. The Earth and Space Science section also has access to a small research boat (5m) which is used for short day excursions.
