Ecological Science

Ecological science includes the study of energy systems, wildlife, natural resources, cultural heritage, and conservation. Learning about the many different topics within ecological science may help students to better understand environmental issues from a global standpoint.

Europe is, by convention, one of the world's seven continents. Comprising the western most point of Eurasia, Europe is usually divided from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the waterways connecting the Black and Aegean Seas.

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.... [-]

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.
