In the face of the biodiversity crisis and the threat to ecological systems and the services they provide, our new program in Ecology, Conservation and Management aims at creating a new generation of scientists, experts and field workers with a broad knowledge in the field of applicative ecology, conservation biology and evolutionary ecology.

The program provides the students with a theoretical background in ecology and evolution, with emphasize on biodiversity, community dynamics and organism-level processes combined with methodological knowledge, including statistics, mathematics, model developing and assessment procedures specific to nature conservation and management.

The program offers a Magister in Science (M.Sc.) degree based on research thesis in one of two study tracks that overlap in their thematic background but emphasize different aspects of ecology:


- Evolutionary Ecology (E)

- Nature Conservation and Management (N)
