Programme Structure

A compulsory thematic course will give you the basic understanding of the core academic subject areas in the programme.

In addition, you choose courses from a pool of restricted elective courses, thereby strengthening your specific profile.

Finally, it is possible to personalise your degree and to create a profile that suits your personal academic interests by choosing between many elective courses, including for example biodiversity and conservation, ecology, nature perception, environmental economics, environmental chemistry, international environmental management, conflict management and ecological restoration etc.

Do a Project in Practice or study abroad

You may choose to use some of your elective courses to do a project in practice in collaboration with a company or an institution or to study abroad for one or two semesters or for a shorter period of time.
