About

 This Biological and Environmental Science MSc programme from the University of Jyväskylä provides you with the ability to understand different phenomena of life comprehensively, from interaction between molecules to the functioning of ecosystems.

Overview

The Biological and Environmental Science MSc programme from the University of Jyväskylä contains two specialization areas (majors):

  • aquatic science
  • ecology and evolutionary biology

Students are assigned to one of these majors based on their application letter and academic background. 

Aquatic science focuses on environmental and biological processes that determine the characteristics and ecosystem services of inland waters and ecologically, economically and socially sustainable use of natural resources. Ecology and evolutionary biology focuses on fundamental concepts and theories of ecology, genetics, and evolutionary biology and the ability to use these at the individual, population, community and ecosystem level.

Graduates will be able to:

  • apply theories and use the primary literature and empirical observations to answer scientific questions.
  • use their knowledge to develop solutions to practical questions.
  • obtain, evaluate and incorporate the latest knowledge of scientific problems using appropriate scientific practices and following ethical principles.

Career opportunities:

Globally, there is a growing need for experts in the field of biological and environmental science. This global demand is expected to continue or even increase due to global environmental problems caused by human population growth and decrease in natural resources.

Programme Structure

Curriculum:
  • The programme requires completion of 120 ETCS credits within 2 years, with compulsory (85 ECTS) and optional (35 ECTS) components. 
  • The compulsory part include transferable skills (20 ECTS: scientific writing, independent seminar work and individual training in a research group, language studies, 20 ECTS), individual thesis work (30 ECTS) and 35 ECTS compulsory subject studies for either Aquatic science or Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. These subject studies include lectures, practicals (in the laboratory, computer class and in the field) and book examinations. 
  • Specialisation is possible through the selection of the optional courses (35 ECTS) and choice of topic for the individual thesis. This individual research project (e.g. thesis work) with associated courses and seminars, in which independent research skills are developed, is a core part of the programme.
