Land and water use have been important and fundamental factors for the survival of humans for thousands of years. Nowadays, because of climate and demographic trends, they are more important than ever – both locally and globally. This Master’s degree programme will prepare you for the challenge of developing land and water management while minimising negative impacts on the environment and health.
The programme has a natural science orientation and gives you the opportunity to gain a broad understanding of the sustainable use of land and water resources and how they are linked. During the 2-year programme you will also learn about efficient use of natural resources and nutrients, as well as environmental assessment as a way to understand and mitigate human-induced effects in our environment.
SLU is the only university in Sweden that offers a degree in soil science and your studies will lead to a Master’s degree in either environmental science or soil science. After graduation, you will be able to work with soil and water issues as an expert, analyst or advisor in different organisations such as consultancy companies, or governmental authorities. You will also be able to continue your studies towards a PhD.
