Marine biology concerns the study of marine life in the ocean as well as in saltwater environments such as wetlands, estuaries, creeks, bays, and inlets. Marine biologists study plants, animals, and the water itself in order to better understand the relationship between organisms and their environment.

This Master’s programme specialises on the ecology of aquatic ecosystems, including both freshwater and marine systems, i.e. in the fields of Limnology and Marine Ecology, respectively. It provides an understanding of state-of-the-art theories and models of the structure and function of aquatic ecosystems and, further, their relation to watershed, effects of anthropogenic disturbances, management strategies and restoration techniques. Practical training in laboratory and field methodology is also emphasised.

Special features of the programme:

Close collaboration with research groups on the most recent scientific approaches to current issues in both basic and applied science. Guidelines for sustainable fisheries management. Hands-on laboratory training and risk assessment in ecotoxicological issues in aquatic environments. Designing restoration projects on a watershed scale. Programme modules/courses ... [-]

Both the ocean and freshwater bodies cover more than 70% of the planet and over 40% of the human population lives in coastal areas. One of the challenges for future researchers and decision makers is to understand the functioning of the aquatic systems for a better management of water resources.

The Master of Science in aquatic ecology is a programme at the advanced level, equivalent to 120 higher education credits. The programme is international, multidisciplinary and oriented towards current topics in aquatic microbiology, marine ecology, and environmental policies

During the first year, students are introduced to the latest research in the field of aquatic ecology/marine ecology and will deepen their knowledge of marine microbiology, advanced systematics, and resources and ecology of marine waters. The function and evolution of different aquatic systems ranging from polar to tropical and from coastal to deep ecosystems are discussed in the light of the newest molecular advances in the field. Students are also introduced to simulation modeling and ecological applications that can offer solutions to complex management problems of water resources, including freshwater resources.... [-]
