During the studies, students analyse the sea-land system and its environmental functioning. The courses in the curriculum consists of Oceanography, Hydrology, Meteorology and Climatology, Geographical Information Systems (GIS), Geographical Research Methods, Cartography, Coastal Processes, Remote Sensing Methods, System Analysis and Mathematical Modelling, General Geography etc. Besides theoretical courses, students participate in a number of the field practices: Hydrology, Geodesy and Geomorphology, Oceanography practice in the marine research vessels of Klaipeda University “Mintis” and/or “Brabander”. During apprenticeship, students consolidate knowledge of the environment awareness and get new skills while working in various institutions.
Physical Geography bachelors can work in Lithuanian and European Nature protection departments, Hydrometeorology services, municipalities, landscape, water management institutions, harbours and hydro construction departments, in worldwide coastal engineering enterprises associated with the port constructions, coastal monitoring and etc. as well as continuing education and research activities of higher level (master) degree studies.
