About

Lund University offers the Biology, Aquatic Ecology programme that gives you a broad insight into both marine ecology and freshwater ecology (limnology), which increases your chances of getting your dream job after completing the education.

Overview

The Master's programme in Biology, Aquatic Ecology from Lund University provides knowledge on current theories and models of aquatic ecosystems, the relation between watershed, atmosphere, lakes and streams, interactions between humankind and aquatic ecosystems, and water management. Practical training in laboratory and field methodology is also emphasised.

Career prospects

After graduation many students of marine ecology/limnology find employment within the water management sector, e.g. as ecologists in municipal or county councils or in consulting agencies. In these positions your assignments could include environmental monitoring, consulting on matters concerning water and assessment of measures that may affect the water environment. The programme also provides a solid grounding that prepares you for post graduate studies.
