Course Content

The Environmental Science programme equips professionals with the necessary capacities by offering a systems approach. This means you will investigate subsystems and their interactions at global, regional and local scale, without losing sight of the overall picture. The programme balances a thorough knowledge of the disciplines taught and the added value of bringing these disciplines together in one coherent programme.
