Willkommen am Institut für Ökologie

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.
