About the course

Which organisms are able to adapt to global change? How do birds decide when and where to migrate? When and why do individual differences in physiology or behaviour evolve?

This Master's degree programme has a selection procedure.

During the two-year Master's programme Ecology and Evolution you will gain insight into the living organism in relation to its environment. Ecology and evolution are strongly interdependent: without ecology, we cannot really understand natural selection; and without evolution, we cannot really understand the properties of organisms and their interaction with the environment. Ecology and evolution are relevant for all domains of the life sciences.

Ecology and evolutionary biology play a crucial role in facing the grand challenges of our time. This includes the

For the Groningen Graduate School of Science and Engineering (GSSE) another important task is to provide an optimal training environment for all PhD students in the faculty. To this end, the GSSE organises courses in 'transferable skills,' coordinates and advertises courses offered by other graduate schools and research schools, provides practical information for PhD students, organises meetings and other networking activities, and provides a forum for discussion.

All educational activities at the faculty are facilitated and supported by the Educational Support Centre (ESC).

Research

Research at the Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) is done in a number of research institutes. Researchers and research groups also participate in different international, national and local research institutes.
