Enrollment is not possible for this course currently.


The master's degree programme Land Use and Water Management is predominantly research-oriented. It teaches interdisciplinary competences and skills of problem solving for rural areas. Graduates will be able to work analytically and practically on the areas of conflict that arise from changes in expectations relating to land use and water management. The study programme provides the interdisciplinary qualifications necessary to critically assess scientific findings and enables students to provide their own contributions to development-oriented land use research, including specific water management that considers terrestrial and aquatic ecosytems.

Durch das Studium, in Vorlesungen und Projekten, wurde mein Blick geschärft für ökologische Zusammenhänge, gesellschaftliche Naturverhältnisse und für meinen beruflichen Weg.
