Why choose this programme option?

If you want to know more about marine and inland waters as habitats and ecosystem services, about the organisms that live there, how they interact with each other, and how they are influenced by environmental factors and climate? Then the study of Marine Biology and Limnology is for you.

Marine Biology and Limnology cover studies on ecosystems and habitats that are linked to water, both in the sea and on land. These systems are natural resources that we use for fisheries, transportation, agricultural irrigation, energy production, and drinking water. The use and management of such natural resources must be based on knowledge of the organisms living there, what environmental requirements they have, and how they affect each other. Such knowledge also provides the basis for understanding the effects of pollution, eutrophication, climate change, and other environmental changes.

A master’s degree in Marine Biology and Limnology will give competences that are relevant for working in both public and private sectors, covering fields such as resource management, environmental monitoring, and policy making. Research projects within this programme option can include field work in interesting areas and a wide range of laboratory analyses.
