Ecotoxicology is concerned with the environmental impact of chemical substances. It aims at characterizing, understanding and finally predicting the effects of toxic chemicals on plant and animal populations, ecological communities and whole ecosystems. As such, Ecotoxicology is the scientific basis for environmental frameworks such as for example the REACH regulation, the Water Framework Directive or the Marine Strategy Framework Directive. The Master programme includes four master courses in ecotoxicology, including Risk assessment.

Sea and society
The ocean is under increasing pressure from human activities such as fishing, coastal development and pollution, and marine resources are deteriorating at an increasing rate, resulting in conflicts and loss of biodiversity. To understand and manage the complexity of these issues, integrated knowledge from different disciplines is needed. To address this challenge, the University of Gothenburg offers the international, interdisciplinary master's programme in Sea and Society to educate a new generation of students and professionals with a uniquely broad training for a career in e.g. marine/maritime authorities, industry, environmental courts, and multidisciplinary marine sciences.
