International Master in Arid Land Studies

The International Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Arid Land Studies (IMALS) forms part of the transatlantic study programme ATLANTIS and is jointly offered by the Texas Tech University (USA) and the two European partners, the University of Sheffield (UK) and the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Germany). The programme leads to a Double Degree, which will be awarded by the participating academic institutions.

In accordance with the objectives of the ATLANTIS-programme, the IMALS- study programme will help to strengthen the transatlantic mobility and the knowledge of foreign languages, and it will offer the opportunity to gain intercultural experiences. The interdisciplinary programme broadly covers the fields of geography, geology, biology and biodiversity, soil and water science, agricultural science and climate research.

Participating students are expected to graduate in 2 years. They will spend their first academic year at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, to take part in selected modules. Students will spend their second academic year at Texas Tech University, where they will take additional modules and conduct the Master thesis. At the end of their second academic year, students will participate in an eight-week Internship at the University of Sheffield.
