 About the faculty

The Geoscience domain has been present without breach in the Alexandru Ioan Cuza University since the very beginning, though the faculty has changed its name several times, sometimes including departments from Biology and History. The faculty’s first name was Natural Science Faculty and since 1990, it has been known as the Faculty of Geography and Geology.

The Faculty puts a strong emphasis on research, having several partnerships with prestigious universities from Europe (France, Belgium, Great Britain, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain) and other regions (e.g. Japan, USA) and having already been represented at international scientific events and documentation internships in different parts of the globe: North Africa, South Asia, Far East, South America, North America, Iberic Peninsula, West Europe, Central Europe.
