The degree programme opens with introductory subjects in the field of Soil, Water and Atmosphere, in which students learn about the mutual interconnectedness between these aspects. Additional subjects in mathematics, physics, chemistry and ecology help to flesh out the basic grounding necessary for the programme. In the first year especially, students will take classes with their fellows from other programmes, particularly Environmental Science and International Land and Water Management.
The second year at Wageningen University and Research takes a more in-depth look at the subject matter, through subjects such as meteorology, water quantity and quality, soil quality and the Earth system, and concludes with a practical fieldwork assignment in which students integrate and apply what they have learned.
Third-year students can choose whether to generalise or specialise (i.e., via breadth or depth subjects). For example, would you rather learn about all three domains (soil, water and atmosphere), or would you prefer to concentrate on a single domain? Are your favourite subjects chemical or biological in nature, or do you feel more attracted to physics and mathematics? How about using your electives for something completely different (such as a minor from a different field), or to spend some time studying abroad? The choice is yours!Future career - Soil, Water and Atmosphere
After completing the bachelor Soil, Water, Atmosphere, as well as a related master’s degree, you can become a soil scientist, hydrologist, aquatic ecologist, climatologist or meteorologist.A wealth of opportunities
Programme graduates have plenty of career options in their chosen field. The majority obtains a suitable position (i.e. in the field of Soil, Water and Atmosphere) either during or soon after completing their final project.
