      Admission Requirements

      To be eligible for the program a Bachelor's Degree (equivalent to a Swedish Bachelor's Degree) with a major in bioscience (or equivalent) is required. Additionally at least a 7.5 credits course in bioscience with a focus on ecology (or equivalent) is required, within or outside of the degree in bioscience. A further requirement is proof of skills in English equivalent of studies at upper secondary level in Sweden, known as English course 6 / English course B. This is normally demonstrated by means of an internationally recognized test, e g IELTS or TOEFL or the equivalent.

      The University of Skövde offers a unique one-year master’s programme with a focus on how we can manage our biological resources in a sustainable way.

      About the programme

      The programme provides in-depth knowledge about the impact of our management of biological resources on ecosystems and biodiversity.

      Constituent courses in the study programme

      The programme begins by introducing advanced theories on the effects that managing and conserving biological resources have on ecosystems and biodiversity. You will study how fundamental ecological theories for the conservation and management of biological resources can be combined with applied knowledge about current conservation and management approaches for both aquatic and terrestrial populations.

      You will also study a methodology course in bioscience and a practical course to develop practical skills within bioscience and provide connections to the employment market. An additional methodology course in multivariate analysis provides advanced knowledge about bioscience methods.

      The programme concludes with an individual master’s degree project worth 22.5 credits. During your degree project, you will independently apply the knowledge you have gained to solve a relevant research problem in bioscience. The programme is closely linked to the research carried out by the programme’s teaching staff. All teaching is conducted in English.

      Career opportunities

      A master’s degree in bioscience brings opportunities to work at government agencies as well as other organisations and private consultancy companies. You can work with issues such as forestry, agriculture, fishing, hunting and conservation.

      Opportunities for further studies

      A master’s degree prepares you for third-cycle studies or other types of research at public-sector research laboratories.

      Research within this field

      Within the School of Bioscience, the Ecological Modeling research group (part of the Systems Biology Research Centre) carries out research that links to the programme in various ways. Our research focuses on human impact and the use of ecosystem services, using mathematical tools, computer simulations and the analysis of ecological data/ecoinformatics to study how changes in ecological systems affect the survival and distribution of organisms, as well has how we can manage the planet’s biological resources in a sustainable way. See the Ecological Modeling page for more information about current research projects.
