Courses for exchange students

Environmental Science, Kuopio campus

Studies in Environmental Science include Master’s level courses in two main disciplines: Environmental Health and Environmental Biology.  By selecting suitable courses, the student can specialize in, for example, biological and biogeochemical processes related to climate change, environmental risk assessment, health effects of radiation (ionizing and non-ionizing) and air pollution, environmental informatics, or environmental microbiology.
