A 2-year Master's study programme Ecology at University of South Bohemia in Ceské Budejovice has started in 2019, with the admission of students at each semester. The programme is an extension of the successful Module of Quantitative Ecology.

Strong emphasis is laid on the students' own research; almost half the credits are awarded for a research project to be conducted throughout the entire two years of study, and will be the basis of the Master Thesis. The best projects will likely be published with the student as the first author. The lecturers and thesis supervisors lead high-quality research, often in close collaboration with Biology Centre of the Czech Academy of Sciences.

Students will develop their critical thinking, acquire strong statistical foundations, excellent field skills, learn how to present their research or how to write successful grants. In addition, several field trips and practical-nature-conservation courses are included, broadening the experience and skills of the student. Graduates will be ready to pursue a PhD in Ecology at any university or research institute around the world.
