The world faces enormous environmental problems. Most of these – including climate change, soil degradation, contamination of fresh and salt water, loss of biodiversity and environmentally related diseases – are a direct result of human activities that place excessive pressure upon environmental systems. As a result, the natural resources and ecosystem services that will provide the life support systems for future generations are increasingly endangered.
To address these challenges the Bachelor/Master in Environmental Sciences encompasses a multidisciplinary and broad-based programme providing a solid understanding of how the natural environment functions. The programme covers natural science disciplines such as chemistry, physics and biology as well as a sound knowledge of special environmental systems and related processes. Due to the mutual interactions between nature and civilisation, focus is also placed on the technical and socio-scientific principles of the relationship between man and the environment. Based on this environmental perspective, students learn to develop, evaluate and implement solutions. The focus lies on incorporating sustainability, with the goal of applying this concept into future professional activities.
