University of VigoOb j ectivesA specific objective of this master's degree is job placement in public administrations or in the environmental consulting companies that work for them. At the same time, it contemplates an itinerary to train future researchers.
Basic skillsPossess and understand knowledge that provides a basis or opportunity to be original in the development and / or application of ideas, often in a research context
That the students know how to apply the acquired knowledge and their problem-solving capacity in new or little-known environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their area of study
That students are able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of formulating judgments from information that, being incomplete or limited, includes reflections on the social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments.
That students know how to communicate their conclusions and the latest knowledge and reasons that support them to specialized and non-specialized audiences in a clear and unambiguous way.
That students have the learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a way that will be largely self-directed or autonomous.CurriculumCredit transfer and recognition:
Recognition of credits: consists of the acceptance by a university of the credits that were obtained in an official education, in the same or in another university, and that are computed in other different teachings for the purposes of obtaining an official degree.
Transfer of credits: implies that in the official academic documents accrediting the successive teachings for each student, the totality of the credits obtained in official teachings taken previously, in the same or in another university, that have not led to the obtaining of an official title.SaidasThere is an important sector of employment in public administrations and environmental consulting companies related to the natural environment, which is why complementary training to the degree of biologist is necessary for adequate professional performance. This master's degree seeks a professionalizing profile, so the tools and skills acquired are of vital importance in the professional development of the graduate student
At the same time, the acquisition of this practical knowledge can also be of maximum use for all those students who later decide to continue their studies by enrolling in different doctoral programs. These tools are a base on which to later build a research curriculum, which will enrich and broaden the prospects of future doctoral students.
