Overview

Developing solutions to our environmental challenges such as climate change, pollution, air and water quality, requires people who both understand problems holistically and can tackle them at the microscopic level. A Master of Environmental Science degree from Stockholm University will give you those tools, through an education in either Atmospheric Science, Biogeochemistry or Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. The courses in Atmospheric Science and Biogeochemistry will provide the fundamental knowledge of the composition and functioning of the environmental compartments: the atmosphere – the freshwater and ocean – and the land systems. They also give the environmental systems understanding of how these compartments interact through transport, energy balances, the water and carbon cycles. Courses in Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry will give you an in-depth understanding of the journey of chemicals, covering principles and applications of analysis, physical-chemical modelling, toxicology and risk assessment of environmental contaminants. ...

Modelling of environmental processes is a key part of daily practice in many public and private institutes. Indeed, assessment of flood risk, climate change impacts on water resources, efficient design of adaptation measures or contaminant transport, to name just a few, all require modelling. This is why environmental modellers are increasingly sought by employers. Environmental modelling master programme therefore prepares the graduates to combine knowledge of applied mathematics, statistics and informatics with understanding of processes related to atmosphere, soil, surface and subsurface water, groundwater and contaminant transport.

Excellent students often participate in applied research projects at the faculty, which strongly helps them to kick-off their careers. ... [-]
