The geoscience degree programme boards kicked off the autumn semester in their joint meeting on Friday, 20 August. Preparations for the busy autumn of teaching are well underway in both degree programmes and also long-term planning is taking slow and steady steps towards better solutions for geoscience teaching in the future.
Geoscience degree programme boards had their last joint meeting on Friday, June 11 and the Geo^2 board met once more right before the mid-summer and beginning of the holiday season in order to approve the last six MSc theses for the academic year 2020–2021 on Thursday, June 24.
MSc thesis supervision practices and increase of student intake were the main topics in the May 2021 geoscience degree programme board meeting that took place on Friday 21. Four master’s theses were also approved and the dates for the autumn 2021 semester board meetings were settled. The degree programme boards will still meet once jointly in June to conclude the spring semester and to further discuss the views on student intake issues. MSc theses will also be approved in an extra Geo^2 board meeting on June 24.
MSc theses formed a loose theme in the April geoscience degree programme board meeting. The GEO^2 board discussed MSc thesis grading issues, made decisions on approval of thesis grants, and proposed two grant nominees for the K.H. Renlund foundation’s “thesis of the year” award.

Finalizing the teaching plan for the next academic year was the major issue at hand in the third meeting of the geoscience degree programme boards on Friday, March 19.
The Dean of the Faculty of Science has appointed new boards for the BSc Programme in Geosciences and MSc Programme in Geology and Geophysics. The boards will work together in the 2021-2024 term and have joint monthly admin meetings. The boards will also work under a single director for the following four years and the admin practices will be consolidated.
Matemaattisluonnontieteellisen tiedekunnan dekaani on nimittänyt Geotieteiden kandiohjelmalle ja Geologian ja geofysiikan maisteriohjelmalle uudet johtoryhmät hallintokaudelle 2021-2024. Johtoryhmät työskentelevät seuraavan neljän vuoden ajan yhdessä ja niillä on yhteiset kuukausittaiset kokoukset.
