What is an MA in Sustainable Development? This program typically takes two years of full-time schooling beyond a bachelor’s degree, and the education that graduates receive prepares them to fully understand the cultural, social, and economic issues that can impact developing sustainable environments. Students also work to study the causes of environmental problems and to identify how these issues affect the development of sustainable surroundings.

Earning an MA in Sustainable Development benefits students by helping to develop their analytical and critical thinking skills as they practice the theories they learn in the classroom hands-on for a greater depth of learning. Students also gain leadership and interpersonal skills as they develop programs and training that can help individuals all around the world.

The cost to earn a Master in Sustainable Development can vary depending on the academic institution and their specific tuition rates. Students are encouraged to contact their potential schools directly to fully understand the costs associated with pursuing their postgraduate degree.

The Master of Arts Degree in Responsible Management and Sustainable Economic Development (RMSED) emphasizes the economic and management perspectives of peace while focusing on the concepts of sustainability and responsibility. Its creation was based on the belief that to better contribute to the promotion of sustainable peace, it is imperative to explore what role the economy plays in the world today and its impact on our environment and societies’ well-being. Issues of rural and urban poverty, growing inequalities and disparities, environmental degradation, financial crises, and globalization are challenging political-economic stability and social cohesion in all societies. Modern society faces the growing challenge of sustainability; finding solutions that will maintain and protect social systems for future generations. Students from the RMSED Program will become responsible managers with strong emphasis on sustainability that will be able to work in the corporate sector, public sector or social sector, both in industrialized and developing countries. -

The MA in Environmental Law and Sustainable Development provides a unique specialisation in a rapidly developing area of law. Environmental law has grown rapidly over the past five decades and is now one of the key areas of both domestic and international law. The increasingly vast scope of environmental law is reflected in the umbrella notion of sustainable development that captures the links between traditional environmental issues and broader development concerns. Environmental law thus covers not only traditional nature conservation and pollution control issues but also broader the use and conservation of natural resources. In addition, we emphasise links between environmental regulation and other related fields of law, such as human rights, trade or intellectual property rights. -
