Environmental Earth Sciences and Geology combines tools provided by Physics, Chemistry, Biology and others to study the geologic environment and to use the accompanying principles in solving environmental problems. By studying all layers of the Earth, atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere, this discipline manages to analyse the interaction of the human with the environment, to identify the issues that we are confronted with and to find means and ways to solve or minimize those issues.
Each of the aforementioned focus areas, the layers of the Earth, presents several specialization opportunities for prospective students of this discipline, with majors ranging from Atmospheric Chemistry to Biological Oceanography or Geodynamics. Providing courses like Physical Geology, Oceanography, Energy and Mineral Resources, Atmospheric Processes, Geochemistry and Sedimentology, the field of Environmental Earth Sciences and will prepare the student to become a professional in environmental processes that can work in environmental and geotechnical research or consulting.
This Masters in Environment, Culture & Communication is concerned with the relationships we hold with our 'wild' environments, and how these evolved. You will develop a knowledge of environmental debates from both cultural and scientific perspectives, and learn to communicate environmental issues using a variety of tools and strategies.
This program provides a one-year training in the field of atmospheric sciences at the highest level. It offers courses in physics and chemistry given that an interdisciplinary approach is essential to understand atmospheric processes.
To understand the challenges of tomorrow, we need knowledge of natural resources, condition of the environment and the impact of human actions on it. At the Department of Geosciences and Geography, you will learn a multidisciplinary approach to research, honoring both natural and social sciences.
This MSc in Marine Environmental Protection is a full-time one-year course, consisting of 9 months taught course and 3 months research project, and examined by continuous assessment. The course provides theoretical and practical training in measuring and quantifying marine resources and the effects of conflicting usage upon them. It provides a sound scientific basis on which to develop policy and make decisions on marine resource exploitation and protection around the world.
This MSc in Applied Marine Geoscience is a full-time one-year course, consisting of 9 months taught course and 3 months research project, and assessed by coursework and examinations. The course provides theoretical and practical training in measuring, quantifying and understanding the physical processes within the geological marine environment. It provides a sound scientific basis on which to decide how best to design and execute marine surveys, be they geophysical, sedimentological or geological, for the required purpose.
The Master Program in Marine Resources Biotechnology main purpose is to form professionals with scientific, technical and human capabilities that allow the development of applied research or management activities in the area of marine resources biotechnology.
This unique MA is designed for students who wish to adopt a twin-tracked approach to the past by using both historical and archaeological evidence. The aim of the programme is to provide research training in preparation for further study for a PhD or for a career outside academia that requires research skills. A key focus of the MA is on the cities of the Roman Empire, especially the capital, Rome.
In the course of the MSc programme in Nature Management (Landscape, Biodiversity and Planning) you will learn about different types of landscape, their ecology, development and biodiversity. MSc students of the Nature Management programme learn about management and sustainable development of nature and landscapes on the basis of knowledge of biology, ecology, human needs and legislation related to nature and the environment
The Wageningen University Master Earth & Environment was born from the necessity of helping the next generations of scientists find solutions for the issues confronting the way we look after our planet, now and in the future.
Geology is the science of the origins, composition and evolution of the Earth over 5 billion years, and the processes that change the Earth and form the foundation for our existence.
The international and interdisciplinary Master´s Degree Programme in Environment and Natural Resources (MENVI) aims to educate environmental experts with outstanding scientific skills.
