A Master of Science focuses on subject areas in the fields of science and engineering. Job seekers who want to enter these competitive areas often do well to specialize their skills in a specific area and to rack up valuable real-world research and hands-on experience, which is exactly what a master’s degree allows them to do. It’s a great way for workers to learn new skills and advance in their existing careers, or for students to continue their education past the undergraduate level and make themselves more attractive in a competitive job market.

Those wondering what is an MSc in Environmental Studies should begin by understanding the many challenges facing the natural environment today. An environmental studies program teaches students how to use natural resources prudently and create natural structures that contribute to the betterment of society and the environment. Students can specialize in the practical or the design side of environmental studies, both of which teach them skills that are useful in a variety of industries.

The total cost of getting an MSc in Environmental Science varies between institutions. Master’s programs are usually two to three years long, so students should calculate costs on a semester basis.

Graduates with an MSc in Environmental Science can work in the public or private sector. Municipal departments often have an environmental scientist in a consulting position to ensure that new public works projects are as environmentally friendly as possible. In addition, private companies also often have an environmental scientist as a consultant or overseer when they plan large construction projects or design and launch a new product that consumes a lot of resources. Environmental scientists have their choice of these careers.

Students who are already employed or who have a busy schedule can benefit from studying online. Online programs allow them to choose when they do coursework and avoid long commutes to classes.

How can tourism and climate adaptation shape our natural surroundings into a flourishing countryside, thriving towns, and booming cities? And how do these landscapes sway our identity and society? Cultural Geography studies the mutual shaping of human societies and our natural surroundings into cultural landscapes. Within this programme, you can follow a track on sustainable tourism, or specialize in the governance of climate adaptation. Either way leads to a Master of Science degree. In the general programme, you study the interplay between place and wellbeing in regional development. You follow classes on natural and cultural heritage, culture and identity, and mobility and multiculturalism. After advanced training in data collection and analysis methods, you conduct field research on any one of these topics yourself, learn how to conduct intervention impact assessments, and write your master thesis. -

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. -
