Environmental forensics is a multidisciplinary science combining various disciplines for an increased knowledge on chemicals released into the environment and their effects on human and environmental health. The Master of Chemistry in Environmental Forensics (MSc) offers a broad education in close connection to research related to chemical safety, health and the environment. This education gives you the opportunity to develop the knowledge needed for you to contribute to a sustainable society.
The Environmental Forensics (MSc) program from Örebro University offers insight into several disciplines including (bio)analytical and environmental analysis, in order to characterise the source and amount of chemical contaminants in the environment as well as describe their history. To facilitate a broad understanding in environmental forensics, the master programme includes a wide range of sciences, focusing on environmental chemistry, field sampling, human and environmental health, analytical chemistry, bioanalytical methods and chemometrics.
The education ensure students gain practical field experience, studying real-life cases adopted from industry and research projects. The programme uses problem based learning (PBL) to encourage active learning and to develop problem solving abilities and good communication skills.
Chemists with a focus on environmental forensics are sought for in business, industries, research and governments. The education makes you eligible for high-end work in analytical chemistry, environmental chemistry, toxicology, chemical safety, and environmental management and consulting. The Masters' degree qualifies for PhD studies for a possible academic career in advanced analytical chemistry and environmental chemistry.
