Course content

In this specialisation in Water and Environment, you’ll be trained to become an environmental expert, analysing the human impact on nature. This might require a change of perspective: whereas biologists are used to argue from a specific organism, we start with a stressor, such as the emission of carbon dioxide or toxic agricultural pesticides. You’ll learn to unravel the effects of such stressors on all size scales, from cells to ecosystems.

This all-encompassing view is a great advantage at the job market, where there’s a great need for environmental experts who can make the connection between science and society. Think of researchers, policy makers, risk analysers or project managers. Because we focus on aquatic ecosystems and wetlands, our graduates have a head-start when it comes to pertaining positions at water boards or within water-related projects.
