Master’s Degree Programme in Sustainable management of Inland Aquatic Resources
Aquatic Masters Programme (AMP)
must be equally available
No tuition fee!
The Aquatic Masters Programme (AMP) is a 2-year (120 ECTS cr) programme, which will enable candidates who have completed three years study to Bachelor level to continue and complement their studies during two years of Masters study in order to specialize as experts in sustainable use of aquatic resources. Upon completion of studies, candidates will be granted the Master of Science (MSc) degree. The AMP is taught in English and therefore is open to international as well as Finnish students.
There is no tuition fee for AMP students.
The aim of the AMP is to produce highly trained Masters graduates with a background suitable for progression either to immediate employment or to doctoral training. Taught courses provide advanced training in the environmental and biological processes that determine the characteristics of inland waters and their ecological, economic and social value. Students learn how this scientific understanding can be applied to the effective management of inland waters. A core part of the Programme is the individual research project with associated courses and seminars, providing students with essential independent research skills. The AMP will also promote awareness in students of the socio-economic importance of the subject through links to practitioners in organisations such as Finland's environmental administration, Finnish Game and Fisheries Research Institute etc.
The Programme starts annually in September.
