Soil, Water, and Atmosphere focuses on knowledge of the processes in the soil, water, and atmosphere. The environmental aspects primarily appear in landscape formation, flow processes, and the transport of dissolved substances and are studied using a science-based approach. You will work on calculating and modelling environmental problems. However, social elements, such as environmental policy and management, are not addressed in the Soil, Water, and Atmosphere degree programme.
The International Land and Water Management degree programme primarily focuses on parts of the world where natural resources are becoming increasingly scarcer. Drought and flooding can ruin harvests. By combining knowledge of climate, soil, water, and socioeconomic circumstances, a contribution will be made towards the integration of improved irrigation systems, reservoirs, terraces, and soil protection.
Tourism is offered jointly by Breda University of Applied Sciences and Wageningen University & Research. As the first of its kind in the Netherlands, this scientific programme deals with developments in tourism and the interrelationships between tourism, the economy, society and the environment.
