The Environmental Science courses are undergraduate courses treating the environment in the Baltic Sea region. They give multidisciplinary overviews of the situation of the environment in the Baltic Sea region and on how to manage and protect it.
The Environmental Science courses provide an excellent background for studying both the Baltic University undergraduate and graduate courses on sustainable development.
The full course, Environmental Science (15 ECTS), consists of two parts: The Baltic Sea Environment (7.5 ECTS) and Basic Environmental Science (7.5 ECTS). The individual parts can be studied as separate courses. All three courses use the same textbook: Environmental Science. The courses consist of lectures, seminars, excursions, and case studies.
The courses are supported by the Baltic University Programme through teacher conferences, student conferences, and possibilities to arrange audio-, video- and computer conferences using information and communication technologies. Study groups are encouraged to organize at least one conference with students in another country.
A web site Environmental Science contains information and materials for the courses. Here you will also find a quiz to each chapter in the book.
In addition, a course in English for Environmental Science is available. This course provides the students in the Baltic Sea region with an opportunity to improve their professional command of the English language, based on texts in the Environmental Science textbook.
