History of the the Faculty of Geosciences

The Faculty of Geosciences of the University of Bremen looks back to a very dynamic development. After a long planning phase (since the foundation of the university) the first two professors were appointed in 1985 and the faculty was formally founded in 1986. 30 years later, our faculty and the closely linked MARUM Center have grown to be internationally recognized academic research and education institutions with 20 disciplinary units and four attractive B.Sc. and M.Sc. study programs.

At the event of the 30 year anniversary of our faculty, a 48 page brochure has been published:
