Environmental Sciences

A master's degree is a postgraduate academic degree. One must already have an undergraduate degree to apply for a master's program. Most master's degree program would require students to complete a master's thesis or research paper.

An environmental sciences program prepares students to work in fields connected with maintaining, preserving, protecting and studying the environment. Possible career options after the completion of a program include zoologist, meteorologist, soil and plant scientist, ecologist, biochemist and government regulator.

In all, there are over 4000 Higher Education Institutions in Europe offering a wide range of courses at Bachelor, Masters and Doctorate level. With more and more of these organizations offering English as the language of education for at least some of their degree programs, universities in Europe are now of higher quality than ever before. Universities in Europe offer a friendly welcome to foreign students and to give a course of knowledge that meets their profession needs in today’s global demand.
