About Aquatic Ecology at Linnaeus University

The Master of Science in aquatic ecology is a programme at the advanced level, equivalent to 120 higher education credits. The programme is international, multidisciplinary and oriented towards current topics in aquatic microbiology, marine ecology and environmental policies.

During the first year, students are introduced to the latest research in the field of aquatic ecology/marine ecology and will deepen their knowledge of marine microbiology, advanced systematics, and resources and ecology of marine waters. The function and evolution of different aquatic systems ranging from polar to tropical and from coastal to deep ecosystems are discussed in the light of the newest molecular advances in the field. Students are also introduced to simulation modelling and ecological applications that can offer solutions to complex management problems of water resources, including freshwater resources.

The second year is focused on a research project including a written thesis (30-60 higher education credits) with an appropriate advisor. The Masters thesis is carried out in fields related to research interests at the Marine Science Centre at Linnaeus University, including practicals giving the opportunity to apply acquired knowledge.

The selection of students who have applied is based on academic excellence and individual assessment. All applicants should apply via universityadmissions.se. The application should include a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, diplomas and references.
