B.Sc. Ecosystem Sciences

The Bachelor Degree Programme Ecosystem Sciences is an international three year programme aimed at motivated and qualified students from European countries and abroad. As the courses are entirely in English, the students' language skills are expected to be at high level. The Degree Programme combines molecular and ecosystem studies and students will be involved in both fields.

Programme structure

Most of the teaching modules include practical work, field and laboratory courses or seminars in addition to the lectures so students will get a lot of hands on practical training.

An understanding of ecosystem processes requires a detailed view of their molecular basis so students will gain diverse and advanced knowledge in natural sciences and related disciplines.
