Program Description:

The MSc in Earth and Environmental Sciences is one of the four MSc tracks in Earth Sciences offered by the Universiteit van Amsterdam. It focuses on environmental problems within the Earth Sciences with an emphasis on environmental soil chemistry, environmental toxicology and general environmental sciences. The fate of the various contaminants in the geo-ecosystem compartments will be studied. Among the courses offered are Environmental Chemistry, Environmental Soil Chemistry, and Soil Physics and Environmental Studies. Furthermore, courses on Environmental Law, Environmental Policy, Environmental Risk Assessment and Environmetrics can be followed. The programme aims at combining a thorough understanding of environmental sciences within the field of the Earth Sciences with knowledge on causes, effects and solutions to environmental problems. All four MSc tracks in Earth Sciences have their own dedicated course programme, using modern techniques combined with fieldwork. However, all four tracks start with the combined course Natural Resource Management of Geo-Ecosystems, including a field trip to Tenerife. In addition, it is possible to follow a combination of courses from the various tracks if desired. The MSc in Earth and Environmental Sciences is coordinated by the research Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics (IBED).
