Master of Science of the Universe, Environment, Ecology

Careers in the environment are evolving today towards greater interdisciplinarity. The purpose of the indication is to train experts who can analyze and model complex situations from a cultural background wide enough for a multidisciplinary approach and an effective command of knowledge and know-how more specialized .

The statement therefore covers a very broad scientific spectrum. It provides access to the complex fields of knowledge and diversity of opportunities both in research and within the company. The courses offered are directly related to those developed in other francilians institutions.

This diploma is part of the international programs.


Disciplinary skills

  • Acquisition of cultural knowledge enable a multidisciplinary approach of the Environment.
  • This baggage includes tools and a coherent set of specialized knowledge about Earth system processes which is the seat and how human societies have changed and continue to change. It leads to an ability to analyze and model complex situations by implementing appropriate tools

Transversal or generic skills acquired

  • Ability to search for information
  • Ability to implement a project team
  • Ability to communicate findings in French and in English

environment, oceanography, climatology, ecology, astronomy


Further studies

This master's degree prepares to graduate schools and careers in research and higher education in the disciplines of environment are: astronomy, physical oceanography, biological oceanography, geosciences, climatology, science of the biosphere and ecosystems, ecology and functional ecology of biodiversity.

Professional Integration

It also offers opportunities in instrumentation in environmental management databases, remote sensing, geographic information systems, management of marine and terrestrial, land use, rehabilitation of degraded sites, management and enhancement of biodiversity.
