Agriculture studies refer to the cultivation of soil for the growing of plants, fungi and animals. These studies explore human and animal relations. Agriculture studies deal with agribusiness, agro-economics, agronomy, farming, animal husbandry, agronomy. Agronomy is related to plant-based agriculture.
Forestry is focused on ecology, preserving live nature including resources that can be affected by harmful human and non-human activities. Forestry studies include genetics, forest economics, zoology, botany, environmental protection, ecology, flora, fauna and ecosystems in forests.
The Master of Science in Environmental Management of Mountain Areas (EMMA) has been established at the Faculty of Science and Technology of the Free University of Bolzano in collaboration with the University of Innsbruck (Austria, Faculty of Biology and Department of Engineering Science). It is a double degree master and it meets the requirements of the Italian Class degree in Forestry and Environmental Science and Technology (LM-73).
Modern information technologies have found their way into forestry and are there to stay. The Forest Information Technology study programme combines conventional forestry methods with IT applications, transforming a subject steeped in tradition into a trend-setting international model of success. The outstanding feature of this study programme is the cooperative partnership of the University of Applied Sciences Eberswalde with the Warsaw University of Life Sciences. Upon successful completion of all programme requirements candidates may be awarded Master degrees from both Universities. The study programme qualifies for an occupational activity in the application range of information technologies (IT) in practice and research of the forest and environmental sector. Students will be enabled to detect relevant IT application areas and to plan and to technologically promote corresponding innovation processes.
This course will appeal to graduates from a range of bioscience, food science and biology disciplines who wish to further their careers in the area of food biotechnology by extending their current qualifications and experience. The one-year course involves two semesters of taught modules followed by a semester of project work/dissertation.
Graduates of this programme are well equipped for subsequent studies in a relevant PhD programme and/or for employment in the wood industry, construction industry, environmental management agencies, forestry enterprises etc.

Assessing, managing, developing, restoring nature, the environment, and rural areas : this Master’s degree aims at ensuring the wise management of natural resources and of rural areas while respecting the principles of sustainable development.
The MSc in Biodiversity, Wildlife and Ecosystem Health aims to meet the demand for interdisciplinary training in understanding and managing the natural environment. With numerous environmental threats, it is important that people fully understand the complex relationships between human populations, wildlife and the ecosystems in which they live. There is more emphasis than ever before on a holistic approach to conservation management, to assess and accommodate the needs of all aspects of ecosystems, with the ultimate goal of sustainable ecosystem use to preserve the long-term potential of habitats and species diversity in both the developing and developed world.
<p> The MSc in Agroecosystem Science offers advanced, research-based education in the fields of sustainable use of natural resources, and long-term, global food production and safety.</p>
