Students of the degree program “M.Sc. Environmental Sciences/Umweltwissenschaften” receive a broad grounding in environmental sciences. They learn to consider and approach problems from the perspective of a range of disciplines. The students receive training in methods from earth science, soil science, meteorology, biology, and hydrology as well as in technical methods and approaches for solving environmental problems. Since sustainable solutions to environmental problems also need to take issues of societal acceptance into account, another important component of the curriculum is training in political, socioeconomic, and planning skills. The goal of the degree program “M.Sc. Environmental Sciences/Umweltwissenschaften” is to provide students with an interdisciplinary education that is at the same time theoretically sound and practically relevant for a wide range of potential fields of work.


Disclaimer
The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
