Master Earth and Environment

Planet Earth is a complex, interactive and fascinating system, providing all the essentials needed to sustain life and support living organisms, protected by a thin layer of atmosphere. Natural processes and human needs often clash, leading to a wide range of environmental issues. Water scarcity and quality, soil degradation, food supply, loss of biodiversity, vulnerability to severe weather and climate change are just a few examples of key issues that need to be addressed urgently. You can choose one out of four specialisations; Hydrology and Water Resources, Meteorology and Air Quality, Biologiy and Chemistry of Soil and Water or Soil Geography and Earth Surface Dynamics.

Are you interested in working on solutions for these and other environmental issues? The Wageningen Master Earth & Environment was born from the necessity of helping the next generations of scientists find solutions for the issues confronting the way we look after our planet, now and in the future.
