Natural Sciences

Natural Sciences refer to those sciences that use scientific methods to study nature and have a naturalistic approach to the study of the universe. This field of study is extremely developed and includes many branches, such as Physics, Astronomy, Earth Science, Agricultural Sciences, Chemistry, Biology, Oceanography, Geographic Sciences, Mathematics and Ecology, all of which are possible areas for study within a Master in Natural Sciences program. The disciplines provide a basis for applied sciences that bring theory to life and practical use. With a degree from a Master in Natural Sciences program, students can have a variety of career opportunities in educational institutions, research facilities, private companies, and public or non-profit organizations.

As the modern times require new inventions and cutting edge technologies, natural sciences develop further and start to explore the cross-discipline fields, where the distinctions between the various disciplines are not sharp. Chemical physics, Biochemistry, Geoinformatics and Nanoscience are good examples to demonstrate what interdisciplinary studies can result in. These are all areas that can be studied in Master in Natural Sciences programs.

If you are looking for a Master in Natural Sciences, this is the place to be. Have a look at the various programs below, offered by universities from around the world.

Sustainable development is one of the major social challenges facing the twenty-first century - this much is beyond dispute. Yet, it still remains unclear in which direction, within which social and ecological framework, and by means of which strategy sustainable development can move forward. These questions form the starting point of our inter- and transdisciplinary research-oriented, and problem-focused Master's program Sustainability Science. CONTENT AND IDEA A distinctive feature of the Sustainability Sciences program is its balance between sustainable natural sciences and sustainable humanities. Our goal is to look at social-ecological systems in an academically grounded and interdisciplinary manner. We will examine the processes which form the material and energetic basis for environmental sustainability problems as well as potential practical solutions from the perspective of sustainable natural sciences. In complex social-ecological systems these material processes are closely interconnected with economic, juridical, political, and cultural contexts as well as with strategies and practices of important social actors. These immaterial prerequisites and conditions of environmental sustainability problems and the way these problems are addressed are the subject of sustainable humanities. [-]

Masters in Natural Sciences. ACCREDITATION Master accredited by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research. Opening in September 2016. KEY WORDS Renewable feedstocks, eco-technology, processing, design, assessment, environmental burdens, green business, social responsability SCHOOL PROPOSING THE MASTER Mines Albi, in co-accreditation with Institut Mines Telecom, Paris, France LANGUAGE OF TEACHING English INCENTIVE Given the current context of natural resource depletion, environmental and public health crises related to air and water pollution, pressures on energy supplies, we are facing a paradigm shift. The linear model “take, make, consume and dispose” is progressively being replaced by a 4R approach “repair, refurbish, reuse and recycle”. The circular economy is becoming day after day a new development strategy for nations. Better eco-design, waste prevention and reuse bring significant net savings for businesses, while also reducing environmental harm and bringing new job opportunities. Turning biomass and waste into a valuable resource is at the heart of this strategy. Generating new materials, processes and markets requires global high-level training, including science, technology, regulatory knowledge, management and economics. All these innovative systems will emerge at the crossroads of process engineering, chemistry, fluid mechanics, thermal science, environmental sciences and economics as well as social sciences and humanities. BiWEM was created to satisfy the growing needs of this dynamic sector. COURSE AIMS The objectives of BiWEM are to provide students with a sound theoretical and practical specialised knowledge in the field of biomass and waste processing. Students in the program will acquire the ability to design economically viable biological or thermochemical processes for the conversion of biomass and waste into new materials or energy carriers, within a sustainable development frame. Consequently, BiWEM focus on chemical engineering but also includes courses on economics, international regulations and on certain areas of the social sciences and humanities. PROGRAM This is a full-time program of 2 years divided into four semesters: lectures, tutorials and practical work over the 3 academic semesters followed by an internship of one semester in a company or in a public research lab. The program is composed of four teaching blocks, including an integrated team project over the three academic semesters under the supervision of expert practitioners.

The first year of Graduate Studies (Diplôme Universitaire), MMEF - Mathematical Methods in Economics and Finance, is a [+]

First Year of Graduated Studies: The first year of Graduate Studies (Diplôme Universitaire), MMEF - Mathematical Methods in Economics and Finance, is a one-year, full-time, international programme that is taught in English. The courses correspond to those taught in the first year of Graduate Studies, which in the Bologna European Academic System is the first year M1 of the Masters. The courses derive from pre-existing courses at the university, with intensive courses in French. The degree is devoted to the training of students in the use of mathematical models in economics and finance: mathematical economics, strategic analysis, decision theory, stochastic models, mathematical finance and optimization models. The training is built around a large spectrum of courses, which aim to give the knowledge for the modelization of economic and financial problems, for mathematical formalization and tools for the numerical solutions. The new models in finance, economics and decision theory need a coherent training in these fields. Around 50 students are welcomed each year. Admission is made on the basis of academic excellence. All applicants must be fluent in written and spoken English and have a recognized Bachelor Degree or equivalent (180 ECTS credits in the Bologna system). Preference is given to students in economics, finance or mathematics. Mathematical aptitude and work experience can be helpful. Continuation to the QEM Erasmus Mundus Master: After the first year of the MMEF Degree, successful students who want to get a Masters Degree, may apply to: - the QEM1, the first year (QEM1) of The Erasmus Mundus Master course, QEM - Models and Methods of Quantitative Economics; or - the accelerated track that corresponds to a combination of the Summer Semester and second year of the QEM (QEM2). After having successfully completed the QEM program, the students may enter one of the PhD Programs that Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne is involved in. The competition within the QEM is very high; only 30% of MMEF students were accepted to the QEM Erasmus Mundus Master, on the basis of academic excellence. Our past experience with previous MMEF students attending the QEM, shows that the intensive courses in math with applications in Economics and Finance, allows for success in the QEM. Students that are selected for the accelerated track have the possibility of spending the Summer Semester in one of the following QEM Partner Universities: Universität Bielefeld, Université catholique de Louvain, Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne or Università Ca' Foscari Venezia.
