Throughout history, human beings have made concerted efforts to perceive, interpret and transform their living environment according to their needs. In the first ages, humans were mostly focused on events and objects closely related to the earth. However, the earth has not affected humanity only with its natural resources but with its destructive power as well. Data provided by the science of geology has proved that "the world under our feet is not as solid as it seems" and that "rocks, mountains and even continents are in constant movement."

Geology, Geography and Geophysics are disciplines that examine issues related to the rocks and processes by which they change. They give insight into the earth’s history, providing the primary evidence for plate tectonics, the evolutionary history of life, and past climates.

Climatology is the study of climate. It is scientifically defined as weather conditions averaged over a period of time. This modern field of study is regarded as a branch of the atmospheric sciences and now includes aspects of oceanography and biogeochemistry.

Ecology is the scientific analysis and study of interactions among organisms and their environment. Topics of interest to ecologists include the diversity, distribution, amount, number of organisms, as well as competition between them within and among ecosystems.

In the Eurasia Institute of Earth Sciences we propose comprehensive courses in geology, geography, climatology and ecology. Besides the above-mentioned disciplines, candidates who have basic science backgrounds such as physics, mathematics, chemistry as well as other physical sciences including ocean sciences, agriculture and forestry and space sciences can also apply to our program.

The MSc level graduate students will take 8 courses during their 1st year and will later write a thesis. For the PhD program students will also take 8 courses in total and will have 3 more years to complete their PhD thesis.
