Many environmental risks and societal concerns are directly related to the way we manage our land and water environments. The two-year Masters programme provides extended knowledge about water and soil systems, including pollution spreading and associated risks for society. The management of water resources and conflicts and collaborations caused by shared water resources are emphasised through applications to practical management challenges in society.
Students completing the programme are expected to be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of hydrological and hydrogeological processes, the main components of the water cycle, and vulnerability and resilience of water resources, use models, mathematical equations and information systems as important tools for dealing with water related problems (including environmental aspects and ecological economics), handle hydrologic data, including methods for time series analyses and management of spatial data using geographic information systems (GIS) and geostatistics, and be able to quantify and handle uncertainty, probability and risk.
Compulsory courses are: Information and Modelling Systems for Land and Water Resources; Land-Water Risk Assessment and Management Methods; Local to Global Water Vulnerability and Resilience.
This broad knowledge is important for professions related to international conflict management, environmental management by governmental agencies, environmental policy, civil and environmental engineering, and industrial and agricultural impact assessments.
The two-year Masters Programme consists of 120 credits (HECs)
* 60 (45) credits Mandatory advanced courses
* 30 credits Optional courses
* 30-60 credits Thesis (mandatory)
The number of optional courses taken will be dependent on the period of time devoted to the Master Thesis, which may extend over one or two terms.
The first year consists of three mandatory courses and one optional course
* Local to global water vulnerability and resilience, 15 credits
* Optional course, 15 credits or Hydrology and hydrogeology (if not already taken on BSc level), 15 credits
* Information and Modelling Systems for Land and Water Resources, 15 credits
* Land-Water Risk Assessment and Management Methods, 15 credits
The second year
* Optional course, 15/30 credits
* Degree project in Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology, 30/45/60 credits
