Hydrology is the science of water on earth - the basis of life for human kinds and nature. Since water demand is constantly increasing all around the globe, the availability, distribution and quality of water is highly relevant in the 21st century and not subject to national borders. In principle, hydrology as a science investigates the spatial and temporal distribution of water in terms of quantity and quality, both above and beneath the earth surface.
In Freiburg, students acquire comprehensive scientific knowledge based on a holistic and system-oriented approach. This is indispensable to answer current questions related to water, environment, and climate change and to provide the basis for profound decisions in areas of e.g. water management, drinking water supply, flood and water protection.


M.Sc. Hydrology

The program of the M.Sc. Hydrology was particularly designed for students with bachelor degrees in natural, engineering, geological and environmental sciences. The aim is to provide a profound knowledge of hydrological systems and processes and. The attractive schedule provides a broad scientific background together with practical modules on up-to-date computer modelling, data analysis and measurement techniques as well as field excursions.


Bachelor program

The Bachelor program “Environmental Sciences” with the minor “Environmental Hydrology” at the Faculty of Environment and Natural Resources provides the aligned basis for the program of the M.Sc. Hydrology.
