Что я буду изучать?

At the MSc programme in Environmental Science your main focus will be the advancement of health for humans and the environment.

The programme is offered in English.

Our environment is hugely affected by human activity. Agriculture, industrial pollution and consumption pollution are all factors with an impact on the environment as well as on humans. The MSc programme in Environmental Science enables you to create sustainable solutions to these problems. You choose a specialisation within three academic fields: Chemistry, Toxicology and Health; Soil, Water and Biodiversity (EnvEuro); or Land Use and Modelling.

The Environmental Science MSc programme gives you knowledge and competences which society is increasingly demanding.

The specialisation Chemistry, Toxicology and Health (ChemTox) is composed of the subject areas atmospheric, terrestrial and aquatic environmental chemistry, ecotoxicology, human toxicology, epidemiology and risk assessment. The subject areas provide you with the interdisciplinary knowledge required to link the presence of pollutants in the environment with their possible hazardous and environmentally harmful effects.

The specialisation Soil, Water and Biodiversity (EnvEuro) focus on use of natural resource in Europe and the effects on nature and environment. The program provides analytical and management tools, as well as knowledge on environmental technologies for sustainable production systems.

The specialisation Land Use and Modelling (Model) focus on how pollutants, including fertilizers, move and are degraded in the environment. You will get insight into the processes necessary to model and predict the environmental impact of our use of land as well as the competences to integrate this knowledge and the increasing amounts of metadata into models. This is important if we want our agriculture and industry to be more sustainable with less pollution in the future, and if we want to promote environmental engineering.


As a graduate in Environmental Science, you can work professionally with problem identification and characterisation and with solutions related to the use of natural resources.

With the ChemTox specialisation you will be able to analyse what happens in nature and people when exposed to potentially harmful chemicals. Also you will know how to avoid the potentially toxic effects of chemicals, as for example endocrine disrupting effects.

With the EnvEuro specialisation your competences will be based on insight in European ecosystems and principles used in current European environmental management.

The Model-specialisation gives you an understanding of the underlying processes of environmental modelling. You learn about the strengths and weaknesses of the models we increasingly use to predict the fate of chemicals in the environment as well as the impact of human land use.

Career opportunities

As a graduate with expertise in Environmental Science, you have many career opportunities, and you are generally highly sought-after in the labour market. For instance in an international perspective where new and ambitious EU legislation in the chemicals area is creating many jobs within the EU administration and in companies required to comply with the new legislation.

You can be employed in similar places with the three specialisations. With the ChemTox specialisation, however, your main focus will most likely be on challenges concerning chemical pollution identification, remediation, prevention and legislation, whereas the EnvEuro specialisation gives you a broader profile including more environmental issues where chemicals are not necessarily the main problem. The Model-specialisation enables you to collaborate with developers of the models used for regulation of land use and chemicals.
