Programme profile

The Master's degree programme in “Planning and managing agricultural, forestry and countryside ecosystems” aims to produce specialists in sustainable management of agricultural lands and forests, with reference to economic and production factors, ecology and the environment, planning and landscaping under current law.

It will thus explore issues like safeguarding agricultural and forest resources and controlling the use of them, enhancing the landscape as part of rural development and a tourist amenity, producing and using biomass for its energy, monitoring and protecting the soil and water resources.

Under the general objectives of Class LM-73, the programme focuses on managing all aspects of agricultural land and forests, both natural and man-related, rather than on forestry alone.

The programme consists of a common first year and a second year dividing into two curricula. The first year explores issues of monitoring soil and vegetation, sustainably managing agricultural and semi-natural ecosystems, protecting the hydro-geological balance and producing bioenergy.

The second year will focus on: A. Analysing and monitoring ecosystems; B. Designing and managing areas of greenery. Curriculum A takes knowledge of soil and land chemistry and microbiology to a deeper level, analysing the effects of management on the quality of water and soil. Curriculum B looks deeper into development strategies and planning of rural areas from a man-related and natural standpoint. Both curricula provide detailed knowledge of forest ecosystem management. The graduate's education is completed by studying English to B2 level, and taking advantage of a curriculum internship with companies or organizations, which may be linked to the Final Examination and its special paper.
