The master's degree in Ecology, Environmental Management and Restoration aims to train professionals capable of developing and applying preventive and corrective techniques to address aspects of environmental degradation problems and for the correct management of natural systems; and to train specialized, competitive researchers in the field of ecology to study populations, communities and the functioning of ecosystems.
The programme provides scientific knowledge, methodological and technical skills, and advanced, specialized multidisciplinary training. It also encourages students to participate in applied subjects with research groups and public or private organizations as a means of acquiring further experience of the discipline.
More generally, this master's degree is a response to growing demand across society for greater action in environmental conservation and management and for a more sustainable use of natural resources.
It has a study load of 60 credits (which can be completed in 1 or 2 years, as best suits the student) and offers two specializations:
- Management and Restoration of the Natural Environment
This specialization is intended for future professionals who want to work in management or as environmental consultants. It provides the skills to implement and oversee restoration projects and to apply preventive and corrective techniques to address various aspects of environmental degradation.
This specialization is intended for future researchers, offering advanced multidisciplinary training (conceptual and methodological) in the study of populations, communities and ecosystems and in the restoration of ecosystems.
The programme also includes a wide range of specific optional subjects that enable students to build their own learning experience. Students are offered the chance to complete the compulsory Final Project (TFM) in research centres, universities, private companies and the public administration.
