The Master of Ecology will provide you with a broad ecological background and will train you to become a critically thinking scientist. Not only will you get extensive research experience qualifying you for PhD studies and an academic career.
The acquired scientific, technical and communication skills also open a wide array of additional opportunities. During the programme, you will become familiar with many techniques and approaches including field experiments, analysis of animal behaviour, mathematical modelling, sustainability research, advanced statistics and modern genetic methods.
The programme consists of 4 semesters (two years) including M.Sc.-thesis. Specialisation is offered with individual choice of courses, i.e. in Molecular, Behavioural, Population, Vegetation, Field, Cognitive, Marine or Soil Ecology, as well as Conservation Biology, Risk Assessment, or Ecological Modelling. Especially during the 3rd term, students have the possibility to study at one of our partner universities abroad.
