Provide students with the necessary means to develop the capacity to carry out independent scientific and technical research and assessments on environmental issues. In addition, students will learn to analyse and assess environmental systems and problems; be able to propose sustainable solutions to environmental problems; and contribute to the development of policies and strategies for environmental planning.

The programme is intended for mid-career professionals with an interest in environmental sciences and in maintaining environmental integrity in relation to human development. You should have a BSc or equivalent degree in natural sciences, chemistry, environmental science, agriculture, geography, environmental economics or engineering, preferably combined with at least three years of working experience at, for example, a university, a multilateral agency, a government environmental agency (national or local), an NGO, a consultants office, or in industry.

Knowledge of mathematics, physics and chemistry is a prerequisite. Computer literacy is a valuable asset. Good conversational, reading and writing capabilities in the English language are essential in order to successfully complete the study.


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.
