Why specialise in Environmental Management?
Our environment is increasingly affected by human impact. To protect it, we need skilled professionals that can manage landscapes and geo-ecosystems for the benefit of future generations. This requires in-depth knowledge of environmental systems and the ability to work together in interdisciplinary teams and to deal with transitions in relation to global change.
The Earth Sciences - Environmental Management programme of the University of Amsterdam is set up to equip you with the knowledge and skills necessary to become this professional. Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to combine your Master's track with the Science for Sustainability minor, which extends your horizon on sustainability issues.
The curriculum combines one year of Earth Sciences courses and one specialised year concentrating on management aspects of Earth Sciences, interdisciplinary skills and an internship in a company, government organisation or NGO.
Graduates of this track are well equipped to develop a successful career as an applied earth scientist. Such specialists are in high demand to tackle the challenges of climate change. They are relied upon to translate scientific process knowledge into management strategies, in order to lessen the effects of climate change for society.
