Joint master in Alpine Ecology

Alpine ecology is an academic field focusing on how abiotic and biotic factors affect the distribution and dynamics of species and populations in alpine environments.

Why Alpine Ecology?

The study will provide students with a better and broader understanding of present and future challenges and threats that alpine environments are facing. Through lectures and fieldwork/laboratory exercises students will acquire the necessary theoretical knowledge and practical skills to initiate sustainable management and conservation strategies in alpine areas, and to do so in accordance with ethical and scientific guidelines. The ecology and management practices of alpine ecosystems in Norway (boreal) and Slovakia (temperate) will be highlighted.... [-]

Background & Situation

Nowadays a professional figure such as a manager in the area of Waste Management & Circular Economy is becoming more important and necessary.

European and national regulations and guidelines are outlining more and more policies and processes towards a path that educates both citizens and institutions, on waste prevention and the implementation of solutions to encourage the reuse of goods otherwise destined to waste disposal.

The measures approved by the European Commission in December 2015 and the Italian law 221/2015 (the so-called collegato ambientale) are the pillars which, once implemented, will grant firms an 8% savings on their turnout, also thanks to the program Horizon 2020 in 2016-2017, including a relevant venture entitled “Industry 2020 in the Circular Economy”, provided with a budget of over 650 million euros....

The Master in Conservation Biology, specialization Ecology, Monitoring, and Management of Ecosystems aims at providing a critical and conceptually-based understanding of structure, functioning, monitoring, and management of ecosystems submitted to various natural and anthropogenic pressures, in the framework of biodiversity conservation. Half of the second year is devoted to a personal Master thesis project.

The Master is a two-year course. In the first year, the course design is based upon the idea that biodiversity conservation must be based on a multi-level knowledge approach, mixing key disciplines in ecology, and including recent technical advances in numerical ecology, molecular ecology, wildlife monitoring, and ecosystem management. The course content is rooted in our established strengths in functional ecology (ecosystem structure and function, population and community ecology), paleoecology (long-term evolution of ecosystems), ecotoxicology (fate and effects of pollutants), epidemiology (transmission of zoonotic pathogens), conservation biology (status and threats of patrimonial animal and plant species), numerical ecology, ecological modelling and research design. The master degree program is further enriched by input from professional conservationists and managers, with the aim to put courses in the broader context of project management and decision-making procedures....

The Master in Conservation Biology, with specialization in Behavioural Ecology and Wildlife Management, aims at providing a critical and conceptually-based understanding of animal behavior and evolutionary ecology, in the framework of conservation biology and wildlife management. This two-year master program consists of both lessons and field trips, while half of the second year is devoted to a personal research project conducted by students in an international research team.

Program description

The Master program has a two-year span, with most of the courses taught in English. Our teaching philosophy is based on the idea that biodiversity conservation must be grounded in a multi-level knowledge approach, mixing key disciplines in ecology and evolution with recent technological advances in the fields of biometry, molecular ecology, and management tools. The teaching content is rooted in our established strengths in behavioral ecology, evolutionary biology, conservation biology, quantitative ecology, and research design. The master program is further enriched by input from professional conservationists and managers, with the aim to put courses in the broader context of project management and decision-making policies....

The Master in Advanced Ecological Buildings is an 11-month immersive academic programme with an emphasis on using a practice-oriented approach to train professionals with advanced expertise in the design and construction of ecological buildings. The programme takes place in Valldaura Labs, in Barcelona, Spain.

During the first six months in Barcelona, students will embark on a series of intensive and cumulative modules and workshops that will tackle all the fields interrelated with the design and construction of advanced ecological buildings, including material, thermal and metabolic building systems.

After developing the aforementioned skills, students will collectively create the design concept, strategies, fabrication techniques and blueprints for an ecological building prototype, which they will build during the last three months of the programme.... [-]

Master's Program in Geoecology

The Department of Ecology and Environmental Science at Umeå University offers a 2-year Master of Science Program for students that would like to specialize in Geoecology. Geoecology integrates the fields of Geosciences and Ecology. With an emphasis on the Nordic landscape, you will study natural earth processes, climate change and the effects of anthropogenic impact, such as resource utilization and pollution. These processes result in a more dynamic environment than what is generally recognized, and you will develop an awareness of environmental changes on timescales from years to millennia.

InstructionThe Study Program starts with a field course, Field Methods in Geoecology. After that, you will have opportunities to take theoretical courses and applied courses directed towards field studies, as well as courses directed towards Geographic Information Systems.The program is very flexible, as the only compulsory courses are the first course, Field methods in Geoecology, 15 ETCS, and the final Degree thesis, 30 ECTS. Courses can otherwise be chosen freely, as long as the requirements for the M.Sc. degree are met.... [-]
