Master of Science Umweltwissenschaften

Environmental Sciences is an interdisciplinary field covering the many interactions between natural and human systems on multiple scales, from molecules to landscapes. In addition to knowledge in the natural sciences, Master students in the Environmental Sciences program gain an indispensable and solid understanding of the social sciences (e.g. economics, politics, management). With a unique blend of theoretical courses and hands-on practical experiences, students develop abilities to analyze and solve complex environmental problems in an interdisciplinary context.

The Institute for Environmental Sciences offers an excellent program of study by combining expertise from Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geoecology and the Social Sciences.
