What will you learn
In this Master's specialisation, you will learn to unravel ecosystem dynamics in order to contribute to species protection and nature restoration. You’ll get insight in the relations between different communities and how they react to environmental stress. Within your two internships, you can choose to focus on fundamental or applied research. Some students choose to perform research at the leading Radboud Institute for Biological and Environmental Sciences (RIBES), while others rather work at a company, water authority or NGO. How do you want to make your contribution to nature?Study programme
Future career opportunities
After graduation, our students quickly take up positions as researchers in universities, research institutes, government departments or companies. And – often after obtaining their PhD degree – they also apply their academic background to societal issues, for example as a communications or policy officer.Career prospects
One year of this specialisation is completely dedicated to academic research. We’ll teach you to design, perform and evaluate your own experiments, under the supervision of a top researcher from the Radboud Institute for Biological and Environmental Sciences (RIBES). You will also get acquainted with other types of research in field courses, excursions to external institutes and company visits. So upon graduation, you’ll already know about your career options and you’ll have an extensive network both inside and outside academia.
