Our environment is hugely affected by human activity. Agriculture, industrial pollution and consumption pollution are all factors with an impact on the environment as well as on humans. The MSc programme in Environmental Science programme at the University of Copenhagen enables you to create sustainable solutions to these problems. You choose a specialisation within three academic fields: Chemistry, Toxicology and Health; Soil, Water and Biodiversity (EnvEuro); or Land Use and Modelling.
As a graduate with expertise in Environmental Science, you have many career opportunities, and you are generally highly sought-after in the labor market.
For instance in an international perspective where new and ambitious EU legislation in the chemicals area is creating many jobs within the EU administration and in companies required to comply with the new legislation.
You can be employed in similar places with the three specializations. With the ChemTox specialization, however, your main focus will most likely be on challenges concerning chemical pollution identification, remediation, prevention, and legislation, whereas the EnvEuro specialization gives you a broader profile including more environmental issues where chemicals are not necessarily the main problem.
The Model-specialisation enables you to collaborate with developers of the models used for regulation of land use and chemicals.
