Our research group is responsible for many of the undergraduate and Master courses relating to sedimentology. Additional information about studying geosciences at Tübingen is available here. The department welcomes international graduate students and offers many classes in English.
Our research group is currently involved in the teaching of the following:
A second semester (summer semester) introductory geology course, including a component on regional geology.
A 4th semester (summer semester) course on the fundamentals of sedimentology.
An introductory geological mapping course (5th semester) held in Spain each year.
Including field stratigraphy and sedimentology.
A deeper investigation of modern and ancient sedimentary environments, including an overview and practical exercises in modern sedimentology techniques.
