The master programme in Water Sciences, in partenership with the master in Earth Sciences and the research units of the Unesco Center, offers a specific course in Earth and Water Sciences Under Global Change.
descriptiON of the course
The IDIL master’s degree in Earth and Water Under Global Change (AWARE) focuses on the impact of global changes on agro-ecological, hydrological and geological processes, as well as their consequences on socio-eco-systems and adapted solutions to address these major issues.
It offers students a common basis of cutting-edge courses, methodological and numerical tools, and personalized training dealing with the impact of climate and anthropogenic forcing on Earth’s environment and resources. Environmental and health risks, geological risks, hydro-climatic risks and their impacts on agro-ecosystems, water resources, socio-hydrosystems or coastal environment will also be at the heart of the transdisciplinary training offered by AWARE.
The program is supported by different research units aggregated in the UNESCO ICIReWarD-Montpellier center, offering an optimal framework for studying the impact of global changes on our planet, its resources and its environment.
Applicants must have clear motivations for environmental sciences and for research training in water or earth sciences. The AWARE Master program is associated with the GAIA doctoral school (Earth and Water Sciences) offering some opportunities to continue for PhD.
