Biodiversity and Systematics, Nordic Master's Programme

Programme duration: 2 years (120 ECTS credits)

University: University of Gothenburg

Programme website: Biodiversity and Systematics, Nordic Master's Programme

Biodiversity and Systematics concerns the multitude of organisms living on our planet and the evolutionary relationships among them.

Far from all existing organisms have been discovered and described, and among those organisms science knows of, classification is still ambiguous. With molecular tools and morphological and anatomical observations, new species are continuously being identified and their relationship to other organisms is being disentangled. In this programme, students are trained to gain the systematic and taxonomic expertise needed in our society to be able to take action against global loss of biodiversity.

The Nordic Masters in Biodiversity and Systematics provides an intellectually challenging learning environment with roots in a research group and a wide range of courses, distributed across the Nordic countries, combining theoretical studies with practical elements. The programme is offered in cooperation with other Nordic universities.

Career areas

The programme is directed to students who are interested in a career as Nature conservation manager (public administrator or private consultant), officer at government agencies (Environmental Protection Agency, Swedish biodiversity Centre, etc) or non-governmental organizations (World Wildlife Foundation, Nature Conservation Organizations, etc), manager of biodiversity infrastructures (GBIF etc.) or want to pursue an academic career as Museum curator or university researcher.

Biology, Master's Programme

Programme duration: 2 years (120 ECTS credits)

University: University of Gothenburg

Programme website: Biology, Master's Programme

The Master's Programme in Biology will strengthen your competence base in order to meet the requirements of employers outside the university. It will also give you a solid foundation for further research studies.

The biology education at the University of Gothenburg is one of the most popular in Sweden. The teachers and supervisors involved in the programme also perform research in many different fields and are involved in large international cooperations, which enables a tight association between education and research.

Career areas

Within the programme you have the possibility to focus your studies towards one of the degree projects given in Biology: Systematical and Evolutionary Botany, Cell Biology, Ecological Zoology, Genetics, Immunology, Marine Ecology, Microbiology, Plant Ecology, Plant Physiology, Plant Molecular Biology, Zoological Physiology or Zoological Systematics and Biodiversity.

Contents

The programme includes advanced level courses in biology or in other relevant subjects, and a degree project of 30, 45 or 60 higher education credits (hec). The degree project is either strongly connected to research and supervised by one of the research groups at the university, or it is performed outside the university, for instance at the County administrative board (Länsstyrelsen) or at companies within the biological field. The degree project can also be performed at another university in Sweden, or abroad. A personal study plan, including your degree project and theoretical courses, will be put together with the coordinator of the Master's Programme, orienting your studies into one of the fields: Ecology, Physiology, Systematics, Conservation or Cell Biology. The aim is to strengthen your subject specific competence as well as your common knowledge of the biological field and preparing you for working with for example research and development, within or outside the academic world, in areas such as conserva

Master's Programme in Visual Culture

Programme duration: 2 years (120 ECTS credits)

University: Lund University

Programme website: Master's Programme in Visual Culture

This Master s programme aims to strengthen the student s theoretical knowledge and understanding of the vital importance of images and other visual expressions for communication in society. Visuality is studied from a critical and intermedial perspective, which includes elements of sound or music, and where aspects like power, history, social relations, gender, and ethnicity are central. The programme is mainly constructed as an interdisciplinary combination of Art History and Visual Studies, Film Studies, and Musicology. Furthermore the role of visual communication (and to some extent, its auditory reinforcements) is analysed -in artistic as well as mass medial forms - when it comes to shaping the major issues of life. The programme covers both mass culture and art, for instance, design objects, architecture and urban environments; painting, photographs and sculptures; film, video and television. Programme modules/Courses Theory of Science and Methodology in Visual Culture (15 ECTS), Western Design in a Globalised World (15 ECTS) or Swedish National Film Culture in a Global Context (15 ECTS), Audio-visual Culture (15 ECTS) and Representations of Violence in the Visual Arts and Media (15 ECTS), Visual Culture (30 ECTS), Master s degree project (30 ECTS). 

Career prospects 

After completing the programme you will be able to actively mediate your knowledge of the visual field, thereby satisfying society s needs for critical tools of analysis. Future career prospects include work within: cultural administration and production, planning and shaping of public space, cultural journalism/criticism, teaching, and research within the field of visual studies, as well as in a wider research context, given the growing importance of visual knowledge in other areas, e.g. the biosciences, pedagogy, etc.
