Program description

Masters in EnvEuro

How can a European perspective contribute to better understanding and management of our environment?

Europe has a long history of intensive use of natural resources and lessons on misuse and overuse of land and water resources. This has forced Europeans to pay strong attention to environmental deterioration and ecosystem vulnerability. Europe is therefore at the cutting edge with respect to environmental research, its use in monitoring, control, legislation, policy and management actions, and development of environmental technology.

The EnvEuro master programme is focused on soil, water and biodiversity and the aim is to give students European and international perspectives on planning and management as well as research in the environmental sector. The programme has six specialisations of which three are available at SLU:

  • Water resources (at SLU)
  • Soil resources and land use (at SLU)
  • Environmental management (at SLU)
  • Ecosystems and biodiversity
  • Environmental impacts
  • Climate change

The EnvEuro programme is a co-operation between four European universities and is part of the Euroleague for Life Sciences (ELLS) network, a cooperation of leading universities in the fields of Natural Resource Management, Agricultural and Forestry Sciences, Life Sciences, Veterinary Sciences, Food Sciences, and Environmental Sciences.

The students study the first year at one of the partner universities and the second year at another partner university. Upon completion of the program, the students get a double master degree in environmental science.

It is important to know that courses on the program may have specific admission requirements and the admission requirements for the program may not be sufficient to fulfil these specific requirements on all courses.

Program content

The first year you study at one of the four EnvEuro universities (home university) and the second at one of the others (host university), where you also do your MSc thesis. The partner universities are SLU (Uppsala, Sweden), University of Copenhagen (Denmark), University of Hohenheim (Germany) and BOKU (Vienna, Austria).

All students start the first semester together with mandatory introductory days in Copenhagen when you meet fellow students as well as teachers and administrators from the four partner universities. This also includes the introduction to the mandatory course Environmental management in Europe. Thereafter you go back to your home university and the course continues as an e-learning distance course on part time. Parallel to this you study basic courses (Basic Semester Package). During the following semester you choose courses at the home university within your specialisations (1st Advanced Semester Package). The next semester you go to your host university and continue your specialisation (2nd Advanced Semester Package) and the last semester you do your master thesis. After completion of all courses you get a double degree in environmental science – both from your home and host university.

In addition to the courses offered at SLU (see Course schedule below), you should also take a look on the specializations and courses offered at the other partner universities. Complete information on the partner universities, specialisations, and courses is found on the EnvEuro homepage.
