Master of Science in Urban Ecological Planning
About the program
Urban Ecological Planning (UEP) is a practice-based program that enables students to develop skills and knowledge to address complex urban issues in rapidly changing social, cultural, political and environmental contexts. The program stresses on an integrated approach to strategic spatial change, with a specific focus on participatory, inclusive and developmental planning practice.
The program provides a strong link to practice and seeks to challenge urban practitioners from all backgrounds, with an underpinning ethos that the best approaches begin with people themselves.
The next round of admission will open in autumn 2016, with the following application deadlines: Non-EU/non-EEA students: 1 December 2016, EU / EEA / Norwegian students: 1 March 2017...

The Ecology and the Environment master’s programme prepares students to work with the management of ecosystems, ecological communities and populations, based on a thorough knowledge of ecological concepts and theories.
The programme has a critical scientific approach to ecology and its applications in society. Students acquire training in practical areas such as experiment design, data interpretation, ecological fieldwork and theoretical modelling, both in a classroom setting and through fieldwork.
There is a strong focus on the practical application of ecological knowledge in society. You learn about environmental and natural resource management, and how it is implicated by various stakeholders. Courses cover population ecology, community ecology and ecology systems theories, including their relationship to current environmental problems. Furthermore, the programme has an internship period and a course that focuses on ecological decision support for forestry and agriculture....
The Master of Science in Disease ecology builds on the student's knowledge of ecology, evolution and molecular biology in order to explore and appreciate the role disease
Diseases play a fundamental role in the lives of all organisms, from the individual level up to the ecosystem level. Understanding the drivers of disease dynamics and the intricate interactions between hosts and parasites rely on a multidisciplinary approach combining molecular biology, ecology, and medicine.
The Master of Science in Disease ecology builds on the student's knowledge of ecology, evolution and molecular biology in order to explore and appreciate the role diseases play in wildlife, domestic animals, and humans. During the first year, students are introduced to multidisciplinary aspects of disease ecology, ranging from veterinary and human medicine to molecular biology and ecology, including current research topics in the subject field. Students are also introduced to how individuals, populations, and species are influenced by and cope with diseases in a temporally and spatially influenced environment, including how climate change and human activities drive the distribution and emergence of disease....

Earth’s ecosystems are exposed to various rapid environmental changes, such as global changes in climate, element cycles, land use, and biodiversity. Such changes can threaten ecological services such as the protection against natural hazards, filtration of drinking water, food supply, and other resources. These situations, in turn, lead to economic, social, and political instability.
Profile of the Master’s Programme
The graduate programme Global Change Ecology is devoted to understanding and analyzing the most important and consequential environmental concern of the 21st Century: Global change. Using an interdisciplinary approach, the programme aims to combine natural science perspectives on global change with approaches taken from social science disciplines. The elite study programme combines the expertise of the Universities of Bayreuth, Augsburg, and Würzburg with that of Bavarian and international research institutions, as well as economic, administrative, and international organizations. The material covered in the programme is unique in Germany and is at the forefront with respect to the international perspectives incorporated in the programme. The goal is to train highly qualified problem-solvers in science, environmental protection, as well as decision-makers in politics and economics....
In this programme you will learn to identify the challenges of sustainability and view them in a multidisciplinary way, producing solutions, which cover all of the aspect
We all want to build a society which will enable fruitful life also for our children.
As the complexity and urgency of many sustainability problems increase, we can no longer think about our investment needs only as a specific technical product which has a great performance.
In every investment decision, a growing need to contribute more effectively to sustainability challenges has to be taken into account.
Climate warming, weakening air quality, water pollution and waste amounts are examples of sustainability challenges faced around the world today. Sometimes traditional technologies offer the best solutions but also the integration of novel solutions to complex environmental problems are needed....

SEEP (Socio-Ecological Economics and Policy) is an innovative, internationally unique program that equips participants with the necessary theoretical background and factual information about the interconnected dynamics of economic and social systems and the physical environment. The program also enables participants to understand different problem situations and use appropriate analytical tools to engage in decision processes and longer-term policy on multiple spatial levels. The strong interdisciplinary background acquired in SEEP equips graduates with the skills to play a leading role in resolving the critical economic, environmental and social problems of the 21st century.
