The programme consists of 4 semesters (two years) including the Master's thesis. Specialisation is offered with an individual choice of courses, i.e. in Molecular, Behavioural, Population, Vegetation, Field, Cognitive, Marine or Soil Ecology, as well as Conservation Biology, Risk Assessment, or Ecological Modelling. Especially during the 3rd term, students have the possibility to study at one of our partner universities abroad.
Master of Science Ecology
The international Master's Programme "Ecology" was established at Bremen University in 2008. It is a programme for European and Non-European students with a background in biology, ecology or a related subject. The courses are taught in English and follow the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
The Master of Ecology is multidisciplinary and contains many innovative elements such as a mentoring programme, integrated skills courses, supporting online material, scientific projects, and individual research training.
Research in the area of “Marine Ecosystems” encompasses the bioscientific components of Bremen’s excellent high-profile area of marine research; Marine Ecology is therefore one of the elements of the Master's Programme MSc Ecology.
