The general academic Master’s degree studies Ecology and Evolution are addressed to English-speaking undergraduate students who seek specialist education in contemporary ecological and evolutionary issues. Our experienced staff, familiarized with international, cross-cultural academic environment, imparts deepened and constantly updated theoretical and practical knowledge, emphasising team work, developing problem-solving skills and planning field and experimental research. The unique, interdisciplinary study programme provides a large number of practical activities in well equipped, modern laboratories. The students gain a broad understanding of ecological and evolutionary principles and enter a path to become successful scientists who can publish results of self-conducted research in recognised international scientific journals. They acquire adaptive social and managerial competences along with a design mindset - so as to utilize ecological knowledge in practical environmental conservation and resources management.
Graduates become effective scientists able to set up experiments and research (including field research/work) using the most siutable and modern methods, analyse obtained results, write scientific papers and reports, and prepare their spoken or visual presentations. The accomplishment of two-year studies allows them to become employed in dynamically evolving public or private sectors worldwide: laboratories, public administration, governmental agencies, various types of research units as well as non-governmental and private organisations.
