The Master of Sciences in Biogeosciences is the result of the integration of two fields of natural sciences: biology and geology. It reflects the emergence of new fields of research in the many areas of contact between these two disciplines.
Its main objective is to train students in new trans-thematic disciplines based on an integrated approach to both natural and anthropised environments.
The objective of this Master’s degree is to train high-level scientists in the field of integrated natural sciences or Biogeosciences. It aims, through training based on the most modern techniques, to provide the essential knowl-edge and tools necessary for the discovery, understanding and management of natural environments in perpetual evolution on scales that are variable in time and space.
The degree course is organised as five blocks: four teaching blocks and one research block. The teaching activity is divided into three parts: one third of ex-cathedra courses, one third of practical work, and one third of field intern-ships. The four teaching blocks are composed as follows:
Basic teaching courses
6 ECTS credits
Common trunk core courses
42 ECTS credits
Specialised courses (free choice)
12 ECTS credits
60 ECTS credits
Candidates must be holders of a Bachelor of Science in Geosciences and Environment, or of a Bachelor of Science in Biology. Another degree or academic title may be judged equivalent and give access to the master’s degree course, with or without further conditions
Teaching language: French. Recommended level: C1.
No work experience is required.

Founded in 1537, the University of Lausanne is composed of seven faculties where approximately 11,500 students and 2,200 researchers work and study. Emphasis is placed on an interdisciplinary approach, with close cooperation between students, professors and teaching staff. The UNIL campus is spread across three locations, the largest of which is in Dorigny, on the shores of Lake Geneva.
