Masterstudium Soils and Global Change, International Master (E) (IP) (IMSOGLO)

Inhalt und Schwerpunkt des Studiums:

All students start at UGent. After the first semester, the students have a basic overview on soil sciences and are ready for one of the two Specialisations that each cover the next three semesters. According to their chosen specialisation (A or B) students move to BOKU for the 2nd semester (specialization “Soil biogeochemistry & global change”) or stay at UGent (spe-cialization “Physical land resources & global change”). The first modules of both Specialisa-tions contain both theoretical classes and practical exercises, field trips and excursions. At BOKU the module ‘Sustainable land management’ will be completed by the students in the second semester of Specialization A. The Joint Summer Activity is offered during the sum-mer break between the second and third semester. Alternatingly, a Field Work in China and a Summer School at BOKU are organised. The three ETCS credits that can be obtained by successfully participating in the Joint Summer Activity, are part of the mandatory curriculum of the second semester. Students spend the 3rd semester either at UGOE (Specialization “Soil biogeochemistry & global change”) or AU (Specialization “Physical land resources & global change”). If students specialise in ‘Soil biogeochemistry and global change’, they move to UGOE for the ‘Biogeo-chemical consequences of global change’ Module. Students specialising in ‘Physical land resources and global change’ move to AU for the ‘Soil physical consequences of global change’ Module. In both the second and third semester, students take compulsory courses but also choose from elective courses. In the 4th semester students can conduct their master’s thesis research at one of the institu-tions organizing their specialization, under supervision of two lecturers of two consortium partner institutions (BOKU, UGOE). The students will receive 30 ECTS for their MSc thesis, whereby 20 ECTS will be from the partner university of the first supervisor and 10 ECTS from the partner university of the second supervisor.

The international joint master’s programme in Soils and Global Change is a joint degree of-fered by the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna, Austria (BOKU), Ghent University, Belgium (UGent), Aarhus University, Denmark (AU) and the University of Göttingen, Germany (UGOE) with contributions from the following associate partners: the Joint Research Centre (Ispra) and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Nanjing).

Definition der Studienrichtung

The three-pillar principle is the central identifying characteristics of both the bachelor’s and master’s programmes offered at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vi-enna. In the master’s programmes, the sum of the compulsory and elective courses must be made up of at least 15% technology and engineering 15% natural sciences 15% economic and social sciences, law The master’s thesis is excluded from the three-pillar rule.


The following compulsory courses worth a total of 18 ECTS credits at BOKU are required to complete the master’s programme (Specialization A): Specialization A: Soil biogeochemistry & global change A2. Sustainable land management - Ecosystem dynamics and their effect on greenhouse gases - Soil protection - Sustainable land use in developing countries - Globalisation and rural development - Soil problems in aridic and semiaridic regions - Summer school (Vienna, with JRC) or field work (China, with CAS) Elective courses worth a total of 12 ECTS credits at BOKU are required to complete the mas-ter’s programme (Specialization A). Specialization A: Soil biogeochemistry & global change A2. Sustainable land management - Possible impacts of climate change on water resources - Environmental risk analysis and management - Valuation methods for natural resources - Soil management in tropical and subtropical developing regions - Soil fertility and soil ecology in organic agriculture - Agroforestry in mountain regions - Field trip – rural water management - Forest soil biology - Soil microbiology course
