Program description

Bachelor Environmental Sciences

Specialists for the Environment

Protecting the environment, making sustainable use of resources and conserving them for future generations are some of the biggest challenges facing mankind today. These are precisely the topics which form the focus of environmental sciences, with researchers investigating the impact of global warming, shedding light on how we can protect ecosystems and testing out methods of preventing the spread of pollutants.

During the first two years of the Bachelor’s degree program, students develop fundamental knowledge of the basic principles of mathematics and the natural sciences, complemented by a grounding in environmental law and economics. Building on this disciplinary knowledge, students are then familiarized with environmental systems (atmosphere, hydrosphere and pedosphere) through lectures, exercises, practical sessions and excursions.
