Natural Sciences

A masters is the first level of graduate coursework and can be obtained after you receive a bachelor’s degree. Earning a masters usually requires two years of full-time study, which amounts to 36 to 54 semester credits.

 

In a natural sciences academic program, many branches of the field might be explored in depth with the goal of observing and learning about nature. Some of these branches may include astronomy, biology, physics, ecology and chemistry.

Norway (Norge) is the westernmost, northernmost — and in fact the easternmost — of the three Scandinavian countries. Norway is well known for its amazing and varied scenery. The fjords in the west of the country are long narrow inlets, flanked on either side by tall mountains where the sea penetrates far inland. The ultimate responsibility for the education lies with the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research.

Best Master Degrees in Natural Sciences in Norway. Master in Micro and Nano Systems Technology The most spectacular technology is happening at the micro and nano level and you can become an expert of this state of the art technology. We offer you a master's degree program within Micro and Nano Systems Technology, which will open doors to exciting jobs in many different branches. The master's degree in Micro and Nano Systems Technology is a two-year study program that is interdisciplinary with elements from electronics, mechanics, physics, chemistry, mathematics, modeling, and process technology. The aim of the study is to qualify successful candidates for a working environment in the diverse Micro and Nano Systems Technology; in industry as well as in academia, research institutions and governmental agencies. The studies cover the entire production chain, including design, manufacturing and characterization of micro and nano systems. Why study Micro- and Nano Systems Technology? The program is unique, exciting and practically oriented and is an excellent offer for those who already have a bachelor's degree in engineering or science. The basis of the study program is the corresponding research community at USN, that constitutes one of the three intellectual junctions for Norway’s efforts in micro- and nanotechnology, with extended collaboration with industry, academia and research institutions; regionally, nationally and internationally. We have good laboratory facilities and spacious, clean rooms, as well as established collaboration with industries that focus on research and development. Where can I work? Typical jobs: Within companies developing and producing... [-]

Master of Environmental Science

University College of Southeast Norway
Campus Full time August 2017 Norway Porsgrunn

Environmental science is an interdisciplinary academic field that integrates physical and biological sciences, (including but not limited to Ecology, Chemistry, Biology, Soil Science, Water, Geology and Atmospheric Science) to the study of the environment, and the solution of environmental problems. [+]

Master of Environmental Science Environmental science is an interdisciplinary academic field that integrates physical and biological sciences, (including but not limited to Ecology, Chemistry, Biology, Soil Science, Water, Geology and Atmospheric Science) to the study of the environment, and the solution of environmental problems. About the degree Environmental science provides an integrated, quantitative, and interdisciplinary approach to the study of environmental systems. Emphasis will be placed on how and why different management strategies can contribute to sustainable use, conservation / protection and the recovery of natural and environmental resources. The study program is research and management oriented and provides thorough experience of laboratory and fieldwork. The study program consists of various courses comprising in total 60 ECTS and a Master’s thesis (60 ECTS). The teaching is largely based on one-week modules, and laboratory and field-oriented teaching. It provides a flexible study program, and places high demands on students’ ability to work independently. Combining theory and practice is central throughout the program. This will provide the students with necessary theoretical knowledge as well as practical experience required to be prepared for employment or further studies. The Master thesis is based on independent study under the supervision of Professors. Careers Further study opportunities are PhD programmes in environmental science, ecology and similar fields of research. [-]

Joint master in Alpine Ecology

Alpine ecology is an academic field focusing on how abiotic and biotic factors affect the distribution and dynamics of species and populations in alpine environments. [+]

Best Master Degrees in Natural Sciences in Norway. Joint master in Alpine Ecology Alpine ecology is an academic field focusing on how abiotic and biotic factors affect the distribution and dynamics of species and populations in alpine environments. Why Alpine Ecology? The study will provide students with a better and broader understanding of present and future challenges and threats that alpine environments are facing. Through lectures and fieldwork/laboratory exercises students will acquire the necessary theoretical knowledge and practical skills to initiate sustainable management and conservation strategies in alpine areas, and to do so in accordance with ethical and scientific guidelines. The ecology and management practices of alpine ecosystems in Norway (boreal) and Slovakia (temperate) will be highlighted. The study program consists of various courses comprising in total 60 ECTS and a Master’s thesis (60 ECTS). Teaching is largely based on one-week modules, and laboratory and field-oriented teaching. It provides a flexible study program, and places high demands on student’s ability to work independently. Combining theory and practice is central throughout the program. This will provide students with necessary theoretical knowledge as well as practical experience required for employment or further studies. The Master thesis is based on independent study under the supervision of Professors. Further study opportunities Students who graduate from this program can move on to PhD programs in environmental science, ecology and similar fields of research. [-]
