Communities and Ecosystems

Radboud University

Master Postgraduate Nijmegen

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Mathematics, natural sciences and computer science
Course summary This Master's specialisation aims to unravel the ecosystem dynamics in order to contribute to species protection and nature recovery.
Course description An ecosystem is a complex equilibrium consisting of numerous plants, animals and micro-organisms, influenced by soil and water characteristics, weather conditions and human intervention. In this Master's specialisation you'll get insight in the relations between different communities and how they react to environmental stress. This fundamental knowledge can be applied in nature protection and restoration or in nature-based industrial processes, for example water purification. With two internships, there's a strong focus on research. Some students choose to perform research at the leading Institute for Water and Wetland Research (IWWR) in Nijmegen, while others rather work at a company, water authority or NGO. How do you want to make your contribution to nature? We'll help you find a topic and internship organisation in your field of interest.
Study subjects The Master's specialisation in Communities and Ecosystems is taught at the Faculty of Science. It has a course load of 120 EC (two years). The first year of this specialisation contains five compulsory courses in the first quartile. You can compose the rest of the programme with specialisation and free electives, internships, literature theses and optionally a field course in Switzerland or Ireland.
