Degree Offered:

Sustainable Management of Inland Aquatic Resources

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The aim of the AMP is to produce highly trained Masters graduates with a background suitable for progression either to doctoral training or to immediate employment. Taught courses provide advanced training in the environmental and biological processes that determine the characteristics of inland waters and their ecological, economic and social value. Students learn how this scientific understanding can be applied to the effective management of inland waters. A core part of the Programme is the individual research project with associated courses and seminars, providing students with essential independent research skills. The AMP will also promote awareness in students of the socio-economic importance of the subject through links to practitioners in organisations such as Finland's environmental administration, Finnish Game and Fisheries Research Institute etc.
