Global Change Ecology, Master of Science (M.Sc.)

Earth’s ecosystems are exposed to various rapid environmental changes, such as the global changes of climate, element cycles, land use, and biodiversity. Such changes can threaten ecological services such as the protection against natural hazards, filtration of drinking water, food supply, and other resources. These situations in turn lead to economic, social, and political instability. Such problems of an entirely new and interdisciplinary nature require the establishment of innovative approaches in research and education. A special focus of this program is the linking of natural science perspectives on global change with approaches in social science disciplines.

Prof. Dr. Carl Beierkuhnlein
Solving global ecological problems of the future will only succeed if highly motivated and clever young people devote their energy to this enormous task.
