Master Environmental Sciences and Humanities
Anthropogenic climate change, natural degradation, and loss of biodiversity but also sustainable energy production, resource depletion, and waste disposal demand immediate action and governance. The management of these environmental challenges has already caused and will increasingly engender ethical concerns, dilemmas, and conflicts.
The Master programs in Environmental Sciences and Humanities educate a new generation of environmental scientists with a special competence in environmental humanities and ethics for resolving governance challenges in the fields of the environment, sustainability and climate change. The unique competences acquired are integrative and comprehensive knowledge on how to analyze environmental conflicts and to propose ethically sound solutions to environmental challenges.
The Master of Science (M.Sc.) Environmental Sciences and Humanities can be studied as a major (120 ECTS) or a minor (30 ECTS) program.
