About

The double degree Master's Programme in Environmental Management of Mountain Areas (EMMA) at the University of Innsbruck has an interdisciplinary focus and is offered in cooperation with the Faculty of Science and Technology of the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano.

Overview

Why to study

The Environmental Management of Mountain Areas (EMMA) programme at the University of Innsbruck takes advantage of the particular location of the partner universities in the Central Alps and includes both student and teacher mobility between the two countries. Courses will be taught by lecturers from both universities.The programme is suitable for graduates of the bachelor's programmes in the fields of biology, environmental engineering, natural sciences and technologies, agriculture and forestry and graduates with a thematically relevant bachelor’s degree. A two-year study programme is offered. The official teaching language is English. Elective compulsory subjects are offered in English, German or Italian.

The first study year is to be completed at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano and conveys a combination of natural science and technical skills and competences in nine compulsory modules. The second study year at the University of Innsbruck with two compulsory modules and several elective modules, gives students the possibility to focus on environmental and resource management, nature protection, landscape ecology and planning, agriculture and forestry as well as water and waste management. Regardless of the chosen specialization, students learn to research scientifically, to approach target- and results-oriented and to work project-related in the course of their master’s thesis.
