Field: Environmental Chemistry
Single study field, programme Chemistry
Form of studyfull-time
CharacteristicsThe goal of the studies of Master degree of Environmental Chemistry is to prepare graduates with deep theoretical and practical knowledge in the area of environmental chemistry. This includes mainly knowledge about chemical pollution of environment, sources, fate and transformations of pollutants, effects and risks of chemical pollution. The basis of this education are, of course, chemical disciplines like organic, inorganic, analytical and physical chemistry, but they are applied to know, understand and predict the behavior and effects of chemicals in the environment. This basic knowledge is combined with deep knowledge about environment itself (biotic and abiotic parts). During studies, attention is paid to the practical training (sampling, sample processing, analytical methods, data processing and modelling). In the education, an emphasis is given to the permanent relation of the educated topics to real environmental problems (e.g. technologies and environment, risk analysis, environmental impact assessment etc.). Important lectures focused on the interaction of chemicals and living organisms (toxicology and/or ecotoxicology) are available to be involved in the curriculum of Environmental Chemistry. Students prepare diploma thesis focused on the above mentioned issues and perform their own experimental research which is usually a part of real environmentally focused projects. This study field is possible to study only in Czech language.
Graduate ProfileGraduates are prepared for jobs in both research and application, anywhere environmental issues are in play. This includes practically oriented jobs in state or private organizations focused on analysis, regulation, control and protection of environment. They are well prepared for doing environmental measurement and monitoring, wide spectrum of analyses in laboratories and also for working with data and their interpretation. Possible positions can be found in industry as environmental managers, chemists or technologists. They can work in the production, processing, management, sale and disposal of chemical substances. Graduates are also well prepared for fundamental and applied research in industry, academia or research and development institutions. They are ready for work with scientific information, writing projects and reports, eventually teaching and supervising. Graduates are specialists of a high quality but they are also flexible, thanks to the broad educational background, to easily adapt in related fields. They are equipped with language knowledge and they can do all named jobs also abroad.
Entrance examinationsWritten exam on the bachelor exam level.
