Palaeontology in Freiberg - that is not
only an extraordinarily interesting and exciting topic for students, scientists,
and interested teachers, scholars and other people (look also the chapters "education"
and "scientific work"), but it differs in its character from many
other universities in Germany. Firstly, we do understand palaeontology as an
applied science, which is very useful in the professional daily work of geologists
of different specialization. Biologically or ecologically, hydrologically or
stratigraphically, with a mining or a technical orientation - palaeontology
contributes to the insight and to the synthesis of geological data and processes.
Palaeontology is one of the urgently required tools for the successfully working
and outlooking geologist - thats the special kind of Palaeontology

At Freiberg University students are educated interdisciplinarily and early involved in the scientific work.The inner coherence of palaeontology to other fields as sedimentology, regional geology, palaeogeography, climatology, or biology, and geochemistry are characteristically as well for our lessons as for our scientific work. In this concern we appreciate a big knowledge and the ability of autonomous working of our students as well in Germany and in central Europe as in the different regions of the world - maybe in the hot Morocco, in the arid Jordan desert, in the beautiful southern France, or on the island of Sardinia.
During the theoretical education and numerous practical trainings and excursions (realized partly immediately in the backyard, partly around the half of the world) a lot of capabilities and knowledge are imparted, allowing the students to work in all these regions for firms, establishments, institutions, or for the own diploma or Phd studies independently.

On the site of the Freiberg palaeontology working group you can get to know
us. Further, you find information on how to contact any of us and on details
of each member of the group: Via links to the personal member websites
you can get more information on very special topics, e.g. special working areas
and recent scientific projects of each member, recent Phd and diploma work projects
within the group, publication lists, research results, image galleries and so
Click this botton and you can read about the contents of our palaeontological
lessons and seminars, of our practical trainings and excursions, on how we do
organize our education program, and what we consider as most important in this
matter. Further, on this site reports of excursions and trainings carried out
in Germany and abroad regions as well as data on future activities are published.
On this site recent students can inform on palaeontological tests and examinations (e.g. size, character, topics, levels and so on), on excursions (contents, loghistic things), and on material related to the palaeontological education (scripts and graphics used in lessons and seminars; printable and as downloads).
The scientific work site shows you the scientific spectrum of our work and interests. You can get a summerizing overview as well on past as on recent: research topics and projects done by the Freiberg palaeontology working group. Via links you are leaded to more detailed and special presentations (e.g. contents, results, and details of the projects). On these things you have also access via the member names of the Palaeontology Working Group site.
