Programmes and Courses

Developing solutions to environmental challenges in the 21st century requires combining a holistic understanding of large-scale, connected, “wicked” problems with an understanding of processes that happen at the microscopic level.

The Department of Environmental Science offers programmes at the Bachelor’s and Master’s levels which encourage students to expand their knowledge in both breadth and depth. Every programme offers a solid academic foundation and allows students to develop themselves in their chosen specialisations with elective courses. Independent work and degree projects support students to become self-sufficient thinkers, actors and researchers. The PhD programme is focused exclusively on original research.

Research at the Department of Environmental Science is highly interdisciplinary and has impacts both on scientific advancement and on society. Our researchers and educators interact with society to contribute to sustainable development. Our BSc and MSc programmes integrate real-world problem solving with theory and practice.

A degree from the Department of Environmental Science in Environmental Science opens many doors. Our graduates work as researchers and consultants in industry, as well as in the public and not-for-profit sectors.
