Overview

The Master’s degree programme offers a comprehensive view of the environment, key to modern naturalists, by combining theoretical knowledge with high-level scientific and practical training. Students will acquire advanced skills in the system analysis of the natural environment in a changing climate and will learn how to master the scientific method for research in natural sciences, the modern tools for environmental monitoring (e.g. remote sensing), data acquisition and statistical data analysis and storage, the principles and techniques of geological, floristic and faunistic investigation, and the methods for environmental impact assessments.

Programme structure

1st Year: Applied Statistics for Natural Sciences, Environmental Biogeography, Applied Ecology and Ecosystem services, Past Climate and Climate Change, Georesources and Geoheritage in the Anthropocene, Ethics and Environmental Economics

Career opportunities

Graduates work as life science specialists, biologists, botanists, and zoologists able to carry out natural resource census activities, design and implement monitoring plans, impact assessment, recovery and management of natural or semi-natural environments, draft thematic mapping (either biological or abiological), organise and direct scientific museums, aquaria, botanical gardens and natural parks.
