Msc.Natural Resources and Environment

The International MSc Programme “Natural Resources and Environment” delivers advanced theoretical and professional skills focusing on the sustainable use and management of natural resources, such as soil, water and air, as well as the positive and negative impacts of agriculture and forestry on these resources. The programme is closely linked, as a Double Degree Programme (DD), to the “Natural Resources and Environment” MSc programme taught at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU) Vienna. This means that graduates may, under certain conditions, receive a Master diploma at CULS Prague and at BOKU Vienna. The duration of the programme is two years. The first year of studies consists of theoretical subjects, including Environmental Analytical Chemistry, Agrometeorology and Applied Statistics. It is followed by subjects which include Soil and Water Relationship, Soil and Chemical Relationship, Soil and Plant Relationship, Agri and Environmental Microbiology and Water Resources Management. These subjects are compulsory for all participating students. The compulsory subjects in the second, third and fourth semesters are combined with compulsory optional subjects I and II, e.g. Hydrology for NRE, Crop and Irrigation Systems Management, Soil Taxonomy, Survey and GIS, Water in Landscape, and Agro-materials. Students may also choose subjects taught in English (as many as desired) from the recommended optional subjects or from all offered subjects. The programme is designed as a follow up to BSc undergraduate studies. The study is completed by an MSc thesis, which students begin to work on in the second semester of the first year. The topic is selected by students themselves from any of the compulsory and compulsory optional subjects. The student is guided by his/her supervisor and the department responsible for the selected subjects.
ERASMUS exchange students at MSc level can enrol for one or two semesters of studies, however are not eligible for the DD study option, taught at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna.
