BACHELOR OF FORESTRY AND NATURE MANAGEMENT (BSC)
Forestry and Nature Management: towards a greener future
In our Bachelor of Forestry and Nature Management (
BSc), conservation, management and sustainable development of forests and natural areas take centre stage. The world’s forests and nature areas are very diverse. Some border on busy urban areas and are intensively used for recreational purposes, while others lie deep in the Amazon and are never disturbed by human activity. Our forests and natural areas play roles that are vital for our survival: from recreation, timber production, ensuring water reserves and CO2 storage to wellbeing and health, filtering environmental micro-particles and biomass production. Due to the diversity and the different roles these areas play for our lives, every kind of forest or natural area needs to be managed in a different way. Our study programme in Forestry and Nature Management will not only teach you about the important roles of forests and nature, but also about developing sustainable solutions for managing and developing these areas and for conserving them. Factors such as climate change, diminishing natural resources, urbanisation and the economic crisis have an important effect on people’s lives worldwide. Forests and natural areas can play an important role in mitigating the detrimental effects of these factors, which is why it is important to conserve them and try to expand them. Deforestation and climate change require sustainable solutions. Are you ready to take on these challenges as a Forestry and Nature Manager and contribute to a greener, more sustainable future for all of us? Then our Bachelor in Forestry and Nature Management will fit you like a glove!
