Ecotoxicology (Master of Science)

High-level international education: As one of the first universities in Germany, the University of Koblenz-Landau offers a Master of Science program in Ecotoxicology.

The program, which is completely conducted in English, deals with effects of chemicals on biological systems. A special focus is put on the development and application of tools for environmental risk assessment. To this end, the interdisciplinary study program integrates concepts of Environmental Chemistry, Toxicology and Ecology but also of the Social Sciences and Environmental Economics.

The comprehensive theoretical and practical training qualifies the graduates for professional responsibilities and promises excellent career opportunities for instance in scientific facilities and research institutes, authorities and public offices, non-governmental organizations, industry and consulting enterprises. In addition, the Master program prepares students for doctoral studies.
