This Master´s program will offer you an educational profile which makes you qualified to use scientific knowledge to solve environmental problems.

Applied Environmental Science is, quite simply, the way in which environmental science can be put to use in order to solve environmental problems. Within this Masters Programme, you will expand your knowledge within selected parts of this wide field and take part in research projects under the guidance of senior scientists within environmental science.

The program starts in August each year with a course in Applied Environmental Science (15 ECTS credits) where you obtain a wide understanding of the subject and also insight into ongoing research. The second part of the autumn semester, you will take a course in Research Methods in Applied Environmental Science (15 ECTS credits), where you will get acquainted with scientific thinking and methods. This is both a theoretical and a practical course. The practical part may for instance involve that you collect and analyse your own data within a research project. You will also learn how to interpret and analyse scientific reports and develop your ability to use statistical methods within environmental research.

During the second semester, you can take a course in Environmental Decision Making (7.5 ECTS credits) as well as a course in Wetland Technology (7.5 ECTS credits). You can also choose to do an individual Literature Project (7.5 ECTS credits) focusing on a specific area of applied environmental science. Depending on your previous studies and your interests, you may finally conduct a thesis project resulting in a Masters thesis (15 or 30 ECTS credits). In total, your Masters degree should include 60 ECTS credits.
