Master's Programme in Environmental Change and Global Sustainability
Welcome new students
How to make sustainable choices on a global scale?
Global socio-ecological problems call for multidisciplinary solutions that transcend the usual boundaries of science and decision-making. In the Master's Programme in Environmental Change and Global Sustainability (ECGS), you are trained to tackle global environmental and sustainability challenges by lectures, seminars, project learning and laboratory and field courses.
You can choose from two study tracks: the Environmental Change study track in natural sciences and the Global Sustainability study track in social sciences. You can also study topics like food and sustainability, climate studies, indigenous studies, urban studies, global land use or Baltic sea studies.
