Int. Master of Applied Ecology

The International Master in Applied Ecology (IMAE) program is suspended across our faculty and the Faculty of Mathematics ad Natural Sciences  at Christian Albrechts University under the roof of the  Kiel School of Sustainability  

The special feature of the program, which was developed with the aim of providing graduates with competencies for innovative and new solutions to emerging problems in applied ecology, is that it was set up as an integrated program by several international universities together and is also constantly being further developed by them. The university consortium now includes European as well as South and North American universities. Participants are

  • University of Coimbra (consortium leader), Portugal, 
  • Christian Albrechts University in Kiel, Germany, 
  • University of East Anglia in Norwich, Great Britain, 
  • Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, Brazil, 
  • University of Sao Paulo, Brazil and 
  • University of Saskatchewan, Canada.


Students can choose from courses offered by all participating universities, majoring in either "Environmental Quality Assessment and Conservation" or "Ecosystems Functional Analysis". Part of the program also includes a major field trip to the Galapagos Islands or Brazil. 

Students must go through a multi-stage selection process to be accepted into the program. 

Further information is either available on the study information sheet (German) for the International Master of Applied Ecology or is available in English on the pages of the study program.
