M.Sc. Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
In this program, students can become familiar with a wide variety of topics in three areas: ecology, evolutionary biology and conservation biology. Students can choose studies from any of these areas, as well as from other master's degree programs. The program is diverse and multidisciplinary: teaching is done with lectures, laboratory and computer training courses, interactive seminars, study tours and field courses. The field courses range from the northern subarctic region to tropical rain-forests.
The program offers a wide range of options: evolutionary biology or genetics for those interested in ecological genetics and genomics, as well as the ability to take advantage of the high-quality molecular ecology and systematics laboratory; conservation biology for those interested in regional or global environmental problems; and ecological modelling skills for those interested in computational biology. The training also offers Behavioural Ecology.
