Studying the Earth, climate and ecosystems
A holistic approach
The department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Sciences in Lund is dedicated at interdisciplinary studies of environmental and climate systems in local and global perspectives.
The width of our subject is a great advantage if you:
- want to understand complex processes such as climate change
- want to learn how environmental change can impact human societies
- are curious about how ecosystems change in their species composition over time
These are only a few examples, but they all require the integrated understanding of how different systems interact in nature. This is the understanding studying here will provide you.
World class education
We were recently ranked number 16 among the worlds leading institutions in the field. The expertise of our staff will help you gain a foothold in the labor market.
