Hydrogeology, Hydrobiogeochemistry and Hydropedology

Master's in Water sciences

Master’s program offered jointly by AGROCAMPUS OUEST and Université de Rennes 1, INSA de Rennes, ENS Rennes.


The objective of the Hydrogeology, Hydrobiogeochemistry and Hydropedology (Hydro3) Master is to offer a multi-disciplinary two-year course in hydrology, hydrogeology and soil sciences.

The course focusses on understanding the physical, chemical and biological processes at work as part of the water cycle within the overall biosphere, soil and sub-soil.

As a research- and vocationally-oriented specialism, it provides a grounding in research work (future PhD students) and meets the needs of professionals working with water resources and soil in river basins and aquifers (design offices, local authorities, European Water Directive, etc.).


Enrolments in 1st year (M1) and 2nd year (M2) take place at Université de Rennes 1.
