Exploring a sustainable world
- How can we stimulate the use of alternative sources of energy? How do ecosystems respond to global change?
- How can we guarantee that sufficient quantities of clean water will always be available?
- How can public engagement help the environment?
- What legal tools are available on an international level to stop the decline of biodiversity?
These questions are far from simple. The only way to answer them properly is to adopt a multidisciplinary approach that combines insights from natural and social sciences.
Choose one of four tracks
At the start of the programme you will choose one of four tracks:
One multidisciplinary programme
You will be taking courses throughout the whole first Master’s year and the beginning of your second Master’s year. There are three kinds of courses in the programme: general, track and elective courses.
- You’ll follow three general courses on sustainability together with all the SD students. These general courses aim at building bridges between natural science and social science perspectives and methodologies. Sustainability issues are discussed from various points of view;
- You’ll follow several track courses and/or research projects in which you will be trained in theory, research methodology and interventions in the specific track area, in order to deepen your knowledge;
- And the curriculum offers you two elective courses so you can personalise your programme.
Most of your second year will be spent on your Master’s thesis, in which you will work on your own independent research project.
