Aquatic Ecology

120 credits, Limnology and Marine Ecology

New Student 2017, Information (pdf)

The master's programme provides knowledge on current theories and models of aquatic ecosystems, the relation between watershed, atmosphere, lakes and streams, the Marine Ecosystem, interactions between humankind and aquatic ecosystems, and water management. Practical training in laboratory and field methodology is also emphasized.

After graduation a large proportion of students of aquatic ecology obtain employments within the water-management sector, e.g. as ecologists in municipal or county administration or in consulting agencies. In these positions their assignments may include environmental monitoring, consulting in water questions and assessment of measures that may effect the water environment. The education is preparatory for PhD studies in aquatic ecology/limnology. In addition, several students aiming at becoming teachers, choose aquatic ecology as their specialization
