M.Sc. in Ecology, Conservation and Management
Description, guidelines and course lists for 2016-17
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 broad knowledge in the field of applicative ecology, conservation biology and evolutionary ecology. The program provides students with theoretical background in ecology and evolution, with an emphasis 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 Master in Science (M.Sc.) degree based on a 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 (C)
