Degree Project Catalogue

Here you will find suggestions on Degree Projects for Bachelor's and Master's levels in Marine Biology, Marine Chemistry, Marine Geology, Oceanography, and Interdisciplinary projects.

Degree projects at the Department of Marine Sciences are done independently and must be written and assessed individually.

  • Each project is presented on a web page.
  • The suggestions are presented in either English or Swedish.
  • Each project has a contact person, whom you can contact for more information about the project.
  • The Department's contact person for the Degree Project Catalogue is Pierre de Wit. Email: Pierre de Wit
