B.Sc. Environmental Sciences, Environmental Hydrology


Students in the program will learn about real environmental systems such as:
water, soils, air, forests, and rural/urban environments.
The bachelor program will bring the student an understanding of the fundamental natural sciences (chemistry, physics, and biology) as well as the ability to analyze and understand natural processes in the environment. Furthermore, the student will learn to critically examine the interaction between man and nature and provide solutions for environmental problems. Training is comprehensive and a solid understanding of environmental systems will be obtained by the end of the program. The courses in this major contain a large practical component: excursions and field exercises, lab work, as well as guest lecturers from relevant professional fields.
