The Master's in Sustainable Development focuses on the analysis of changes needed to create sustainable solutions to achieve an environmentally and socially accountable society.
The Master's programme in Sustainable Development (SD) is aimed at those who want to make a substantial contribution to the transition to a sustainable society through their scientific research; and who want to contribute to innovative future solutions for environmental issues. This two year research programme offers you the opportunity to develop excellent research skills and to apply them effectively to a broad range of specialised topics within the field of sustainable development. In the whole first year, and the beginning of the second, you will follow joint courses in Sustainability, and specialised courses in your chosen track: Energy and Materials; Global Change and Ecosystems; Environmental Governance; or International Development. This last track has a mandatory internship in the first year. Most of the second year is spent on independent research for your final Master's thesis. Some students may also participate in an International Joint Master's Programme. As a graduate of the SD programme, you will be eligible for PhD studies or a position in research institutes, government, business or an NGO.
This programme has a workload of 120 ECTS.
