Programme overview

This Master’s programme provides knowledge on current theories and models of aquatic ecosystems, the relation between watershed, atmosphere, lakes and streams, interactions between humankind and aquatic ecosystems, and water management. Practical training in laboratory and field methodology is also emphasised. Some of the courses contain week-long excursions where practical field studies are conducted; from hypotheses and preparations, via sampling, analysing samples and data, and finally writing a report and performing an oral presentation.

Special features of the programme:

  • Close collaboration with research groups on state-of-the-art scientific approaches to current environmental issues within aquatic ecology, including climate change.
  • Derivation of guidelines for sustainable fisheries management.
  • Hands-on laboratory training and risk assessment in ecotoxicological issues in aquatic environments.
  • Designing restoration projects in aquatic watersheds.
