The Postgraduate Environmental Physics (PEP) / Wahlfach Umweltphysik Programme offers attractive opportunities for graduate and postgraduate studies organised jointly by the staff of the following institutes:


Three types of study programmes lead to the following qualifications:

  • Master of Science in Physik (M.Sc.) with “Wahlfach Umweltphysik” after two years
  • Master of Science in Environmental Physics (M.Sc.) after two years
  • Environmental Physics Certificate after one year
  • Particularly qualified students may enter directly a Ph.D. programme after successful completion of one year of PEP.

Our activities in environmental physics encompass various areas of research that span from atmospheric sciences, physics of the ocean and ice, polar research to terrestrial physics. Both, the IUP as part of the Physics Department (Fachbereich 1) of the University of Bremen and the AWI are among the leading research institutes in the field of environmental sciences in Germany with a strong international reputation.
