Магистратура: Master In Ecology

Program title Ecology
Program level Master (MSc)
Language of instruction English
All courses are given in English, no knowledge of Russian is required. However, introductory Russian language course shall be provided for all students. Non-English speakers shall be also provided with English language course.
Brief description The program in Ecology at Lomonosov Moscow State University is a complete Master level degree program provided by Lomonosov MSU Faculty of Biology, the leading academic institution of Russia. The program is aimed at training highly qualified specialists with profound knowledge and expertise in the field of general and applied ecology. A Master will be able to successfully deal with conceptual issues and practical problems related to various subflields of ecology and environmental science. A Master will be ready to function as an expert in making decisions regarding complex situations and controversial issues related to environmental management and protection.
Description Ecology studies biological organisms’ interaction among each other and with their environments. The Program
  • Concentrates upon the operation of biological systems at various organization levels, including those of the organism, the population, the ecosystem, the landscape, the biome, and the entire biosphere. 
  • Enables the students to develop biopolicies to deal with ecological problems caused by environmental pollution, the disruption of the ecological matrix of an area, and biodiversity-endangering factors. 
  • Provides analytical tools for processing information on the biotic and abiotic components of an ecosystem
  • Sets forth conceptual approaches to assessing ecological data sets, including multidimensional statistical methods, geo-informational systems, network analysis, and mathematical modeling.
Teaching all subjects in English makes the courses available for foreign students including those using international student exchange programs.  The courses enable the students to critically evaluate the achievements and shortcomings of the world’s ecological/environmental science and practical policies
Program duration 2 years, starting in October 2015
Program faculty The Program involves about 30 professors and associate professors from Russia, the USA and Europe, most of them top scholars in their respective fields covering the whole range of Ecology. See list of professors in Addendum
Competencies As a result of the course you will gain the following special competences:
  • In-depth knowledge enabling you  to professionally conduct independent theoretical and experimental studies in the field of modern ecology,  adequately set forth  the results obtained thereby (orally and in writing), and be actively involved in various kinds of environment-related scientific events (Special Competence 1)
  • Capacity to employ the cutting-edge analytical tools of a whole gamut of ecology subfields concerning biological systems at various organization levels ranging from a single organism to the whole biosphere and to evaluate the conceptual importance and the practical value of a scientific research project and to analyze its results and methodological advantages with respect to fundamental issues in the field of modern ecology, environmental science, and biopolitics (Special Competence 2).  
  • Skills enabling you to use computational techniques for assessing ecological information, including statistical data processing methods, geo-informational systems, mathematical modelling, and network analysis. You will be in a position to statistically verify the results of ecological\environmental research and the conclusions drawn therefrom as well as to make scientifically valid predictions (Special Competence 3).
  • Conceptual knowledge in the field of ecology applicable to various stages of practical  research and development activities, in terms (a) of education at academic institutions and (b) of expert assessment and counselling activities involving natural resource management bodies and environmental NGOs (Special Competence 4)
  • Last nor least: Fluency in scientific English as the language of international environment-centered interactivity as well as the ability to conduct discussions on scientific and organizational issues related to environmental protection and management, to give scientifically acceptable presentations on ecologically/environmentally relevant subjects (in English), and to carry out professional-level research work at any English language-using institution (Special Competence 5)
