The MSc in Ecology and Evolution is a combination of in-depth training and the opportunity for designing a tailor-made program in ecology and evolution. In our program, students form collaborative cohorts and frequently interact with their supervisors & teachers. They also receive coaching from a personal mentor. They can participate in a broad spectrum of research projects, tailored to the individual preferences of the student, ranging from microbes to whales, and from molecules to ecosystems. Research can be conducted in the field or in the lab and theoretically as well as experimentally. There are also opportunities to conduct fieldwork in diverse environments (on all five continents), including the nearby Wadden Sea (on the UNESCO World Heritage list) and the arctic regions. We offer a double degree for the track Evolutionary Biology with the universities of Uppsala, Montpellier or Munich. Besides that, our faculty is the home of the 2016 Nobel laureate in Chemistry, Ben Feringa, and GELIFES is the home of the 2014 Spinoza Prize winner, Theunis Piersma. -

The School of Ecology and Environment Studies (SEES) is defining the Nalanda Model of sustainable and inclusive development. It has its roots in local traditions, links past and present systems of knowledge and bridges the gap in the understanding of environmental issues between the West and the East. It is the first truly interdisciplinary School in India, and possibly in the East Asian region, combining knowledge from the basic sciences, social sciences and humanities to train environmental leaders of tomorrow. Global intellectual engagement, through collaborative projects, tie-ups and exchanges with local and international institutions, is creating leaders representing an inter-connected Asia, championing ideas based on mutual understanding. The School is trying to chart out the new social contract for science in the “century of the environment” by promoting dialogue among different bodies of knowledge and close interaction of different actors and organizations to tackle the challenges and opportunities arising in the contemporary world for promoting a sustainable future. The School offers a two-year Master’s program with both M.A. and M.Sc. degrees in Environmental Studies. The School welcomes students from diverse disciplinary backgrounds, who are habitually curious, share a passion for environmental leadership and an aptitude for learning. All Master’s students are required to obtain at least 64 credits spread over 4 semesters, with a summer internship during the vacation between the first and second year and a dissertation in the last semester. -

The master's programme Ecology Futures focuses on the role of new media art and design research in interpreting, analyzing, critiquing, experiencing and visualizing ecological degradation and its broad network of cause and effect. It introduce to artistic methodologies and technologies that are informed by science; conducting fieldwork, deep mapping, use of AI in text writing, use of opensource datasets and software, using earth observation data, sensory technologies, storytelling through science fiction writing, artistic journalism, material research and microbiology. Through artistic research rooted in scientific methodologies, students will be challenged to develop their own position, both theoretical and practical. Together we will envision all kinds of different ecological futures, developing critical work about our position as humans in relation to all other living and non-living entities, aiming to achieve a radical shift in perception on society today. -
