Objectifs de la formation

The objective of the programme is to train students to answer questions of interest to both academia (paleobiology, macroevolution, climate change and impact on the biodiversity...), industry (resource exploration in sedimentary basins, paleoenvironmental reconstructions), and geoconservation (development of geotourism and related economic and societal impacts, geoheritage management and conservation, cultural and scientific values).

Spécificités de la formation

  • A master degree in a stimulating scientific Environment within the Graduate Program ’Science for a changing planet’
  • Scholarships from the Graduate Program potentially available for M1 and M2 courses.
  • A programme integrated into the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree Pangea. Applied Palaeontology, Palaeobiology, and Geoheritage” (https://master-pangea.eu/)
  • Possibility to enroll in a two-year Double Diploma programme taught in English, established with our partner universities in Italy (Pisa), Sweden (Uppsala), and Russia (Novossibirsk)
  • Strong networking with internationally acknowledged research-teams
  • Immersion in a professionally-oriented and multicultural, international environment (about 15 nationalities have attended our master courses since 2015, guest-lecturers of 7 nationalities have also taken part of pedagogic staff)
  • Up to 8 months of internship in industries, NGO’s or research teams

Compétences visées

The Master programme provides students with discipline specific knowledge, concepts, skills, habits of mind (data use and reasoning), and professional, transferable skills (communication, project management, transfer of knowledge, interpersonal collaboration...) to make them able to deal with all aspects of fundamental and applied paleontology:

  • Methods of analysis, treatment, and intervention in Sedimentary Geology (sequence stratigraphy; facies analysis, characterization of geological material)
  • Application of principles and technical skills for paleontological and paleoenvironmental analyses (statistics in macroevolution and paleoecology, scientific communication, geobiological processes, paleoclimatology)
  • Technical skills in applied paleontology (micropaleontological and biostratigraphic analyses, industrial and environmental applications)
  • Skills and methods in geoconservation (case studies in management of geological collections and geosites, regulatory protection in France and abroad, scientific dissemination, ...)

Organisation de la formation

Paleoenvironment is a consecutive, 2-years Master programme (120 European Credits, ECTS), fully taught in English. It leads to a French MSc degree sponsored by the French Government.

The programme is backed by the ‘Evo-Eco-Paleo’ research team (UMR 8198 CNRS; http://eep.univ-lille.fr/ en) and teaching staff of the Earth Science Department of Lille University.

The units of the programme include fundamental and practical courses. They are organized around six fields of skills, know-how and knowledge (called BKS):

  • BKS1 - Development of highly specialized knowledge
  • BKS2 - Advanced applications of digital tools
  • BKS3 - Specialized communication for the transfer of knowledge
  • BKS4 - Field-trip experience
  • BKS5 - Personal professional development
  • BKS6 - Integration of transferable skills, interdisciplinary and, or discipline-specific principles.

The Master thesis can be written based either on an internship in a research laboratory of a partner university or in an associate partner organization or any other company offering oriented topic for the master thesis. The defense of the master thesis is public.
