Bachelor in Environmental Sciences
The Bachelor of Science course lasts three years. The first two years are devoted to basic studies in the general disciplines of chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics, and information technology, supplemented by fundamental economics and law. From this foundation, students are able to learn more in lectures, practical applications and excursions about the environmental systems – Atmosphere (air), Hydrosphere (water), Pedosphere (earth), and Anthroposphere, as well as land-use in agriculture and forestry. The environmental studies are complemented by courses in social sciences and the humanities as well as technical subjects.
