Description

During the two-year master programme at Wageningen University, students will learn about earth and the environment, meteorology, soil, hydrology and earth science by using tools provided by physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics. Students will acquire a quantitative understanding of the composition, structure and processes of the earth and its atmosphere, as well as the impact of human activity. Water scarcity and quality, soil degradation and food supply, loss of biodiversity, vulnerability to severe weather and climate change are just a few examples of the major issues that need to be addressed.
