Do you want to dive into water and environmental issues on all scales and connect scientific findings to societal implications or environmental policies? This might require a change of viewpoint: whereas ecologists take species as their viewpoint, we start with stressors, such as the carbon dioxide emissions, agricultural pesticide use, or hunting.
In this specialisation you will be trained to become an environmental, water or nature expert, analysing the impact of mankind on ecosystem and human health. You will learn to quantitatively assess and manage issues like climate change, pollution and land use change. During two internships, you will be responsible for your own experiments, surveys and (model) analysis, under the supervision of one of our top researchers at the IWWR.
