Content

The Master of Biology: specialisation Global Change Biology helps you to acquire a thorough insight into the complex causes and consequences of global change. You will learn how climate change, global alterations of land use, disrupted water and biogeochemical cycles, pollution, biological invasions and loss of biodiversity are threatening the viability of our planet, for us humans, and for many organisms in natural ecosystems. During the preparation of your Master’s thesis, you will be exposed to high-level research environments in the department. Through interactions with professors, PhD students and staff members, you will develop the skills and competence required to research the phenomenon of global change and to help mitigate its effects.
 

You will strengthen your insights by attending the following key courses:
 

  • Laboratory skills for global change biologists
  • Global change physiology
  • Evolutionary responses to global change
  • Terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystem functioning
  • Ecosystem-based adaptation to global change

Why this university?

Let our students tell you why!

Blake Alexander Simmons (USA) - M.Sc. in Biology – Biodiversity: Conservation and Restoration
“This study programme can be considered as pretty international, since almost half of my fellow students are from abroad. I think it’s a great enrichment if you have so much different knowledge and many points of view around. This study experience will certainly make me a better biologist.”

Cyril France (Ghana) - M.Sc. in Development Evaluation and Management
“The study programme is well structured and followed by students from all over the world, which brings a lot of diversity in the classroom.”

Julia Port (Germany) – M.Sc. in Biomedical Sciences: Infectious and Tropical Diseases
“Compared to other European programmes on infectious and tropical diseases, UAntwerp offers courses on broader subject areas such as public health, healthcare, statistics and epidemiology.”

Juliana Pinheiro Maia (Brazil) - M.Sc. in Applied Economic Sciences: Business Administration
“The cases we cover are international and not only considered from a European point of view. The teaching level is very high and the system itself is tough, since there is only one exam at the end of each term.”

Phui San Cheong (Malaysia) – M.Sc. in Computer Science: Computer Networks and Distributed Systems
“The course is quite challenging. The Lecturers expect a lot from the students, so it’s important that you have the required academic background before starting your studies here.”

Slaviša Milovanovi? (Serbia) – M.Sc. in Physics
“UAntwerp has one of the most productive research groups and finest experts.”

Zeynep Savran (Turkey) – M.Sc. in Applied Economic Sciences: Economic Policy
“The thing I like the most in Belgium is how respectful people are for each other, regardless religion or political ideology, for instance. They have respect for diversity, I would say.”
