The discipline of Environmental System Analysis researches interaction and sets out to understand, describe patterns and behaviour models of different interacting entities that affect the environment and to design and optimise solutions for the issues identified in the environment.
A student of this discipline will study methods and means used to identify, asses, address and solve issues of the environment ranging from climate change and pollution to social, behavioural and policy problems.
The application of this science investigates systems and identifies the components as well as their functioning manner and scope. As a professional you can expect to adapt, modify, expand, improve or create new systems that address and solve the issues that humans are confronted with in their environment.
The Environmental Risk Assessment Certificate provides a solid foundation in the characterization of source areas, linking fate and transport mechanisms, and evaluating exposure pathways to assess environmental risk.
A practitioner degree that addresses the advanced educational needs of working life science professionals. There are no prescribed areas of study within the Masters of Applied Sciences, therefore you're able to individualize your particular curriculum program to best meet your own career objectives.
Chicago Harris and the Division of the Physical Sciences jointly offer the Master of Science degree in Environmental Science and Policy. The broad objective of the program is to provide students with the academic background in both policy and environmental science required for informed decision making in business and government. To a large extent, the curriculum of this program draws upon courses already in place at Chicago Harris and in the Division of the Physical Sciences, although an introductory overview course and an independent study are designed to integrate the policy and science aspects of the program.
The UC San Diego Master's Degree in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation equips professionals with the knowledge they need to improve conservation of marine biodiversity in the world's most diverse and threatened eco-regions. It is focused on development of local capacity and science-based management tools. This is a unique graduate program of study providing cutting-edge knowledge of marine biodiversity and fresh conservation perspectives designed to teach current and future professionals about marine ecosystems from the scientific, economic and policy perspectives, as well as provide important cultural and communications skills.
As a result of the National Ecosystem Assessment in the UK, there is new demand for land management professionals with quantitative and integrative landscape capabilities, who will be required to cover topics from ecosystem services, biodiversity and agriculture. Worldwide, 90% of ecosystems are managed by humans and now international attention is focusing on landscape level strategies to address the integration between biodiversity and natural capital for the provision of ecosystem services.
A Certificate in Environmental Planning and Design will prepare students to develop a strategy to implement sustainable design practices at the landscape scale. An overview of planning tools, including the use of Geographic Information Systems, environmental impact analyses, and the principles of sustainable design will be integrated in this program.
This degree provides the student with curriculum and research opportunities in one of the world’s most significant science and policy issues: the environment. Students will study ecosystems management, the impact of industrialization on the environment, economics and resource availability, regulation and law, environmental ethics, landscape-level conservation, political ecology, and environmental technology and management.
The question is no longer if our climate will change, but how will it change and how will we adapt to these changes? Adaption and mitigation to global warming, the greenhouse effect and climate change all form the basis of the Master Climate Studies programme at Wageningen University. Students will gain a broad overview of climate change during this two-year programme.
The Environmental Engineering degree program is designed for recent engineering graduates and for practicing, mid-career engineers seeking professional advancement.
In the present Master Program we aim at providing you with advanced training in the area of Biotechnology, with application to the Marine Resources, seeking to apply current knowledge of modern marine biology and biotechnology to the study, protection and development of marine resources.
Environmental History is an interdisciplinary field where the complex relationship between man and nature over time and space are at the centre, focussing on historical changes, events, debates and analytical perspectives on the relationship man-nature. Through the analysis of these relationships in the past Environmental History also has the ambition to interpret, explain and debate contemporary issues of sustainability.
This European Master's responds to the increasing need to better understand and anticipate the various and often complex socio-economic and environmental effects of these policies, either in a functioning market economy as in the European Union or in economies in a development or transition phase.
