Focus on sustainability science and policy, and especially in sustainability assessment, through an interdisciplinary curriculum in an international ambience in 1 year.
Sustainable development – reconciling society's developmental goals with the planet's environmental limits over the long term – has emerged as one of the central challenges facing humanity in the 21st century. Sustainability science and policy requires a long term perspective and system's thinking in order to understand the dynamic interconnections between the environment, economy and society. There is an urgent need for scholars and professionals who are trained in interdisciplinary and integrative approaches towards sustainable development, enabling them to assess and deal with the complexity involved from a system's perspective. The Sustainability, Science, Policy and Society master programme will create a unique opportunity for students to specialize in sustainability science and policy, and especially in sustainability assessment, through an interdisciplinary curriculum in an international ambiance.
