Students who have completed a Bachelor of Science may decide to continue their education through a Master of Science. This postgraduate program takes about two years to complete and typically focuses on specifics of science-related fields.

What is an MSc in Environmental Sustainability? This type of program tends to delve into complex challenges, such as food security, climate change and biodiversity loss, in sustainability. Courses may teach students how to apply sustainability methods to buildings, the waste sector and property development. The courses required can vary by institution, but may include sustainable water resources management, renewable energy finance and environmental law, building performance, integrated management systems, sustainable building design, waste management and sustainable energy technologies.

The courses in a master’s program focusing on environmental sustainability tend to prepare students to analyze and develop sustainability solutions. These skills make graduates great candidates for high-level jobs in an environmental field. Students may also improve their communication skills, which can be beneficial for every aspect of life.

The tuition of a master’s program is not the same at every institution. Typically, the cost depends on the location of the school, duration of the program and mode of the classes. It’s a good idea to contact a school directly to learn about the exact costs.

Because environmental sustainability is an important aspect of so many career paths, graduates can have a lot of opportunities. Some students may go on to become consulting engineers, housing association specialists, architects, environmental policymakers or quantity surveyors. A person’s education and work history may affect the job opportunities available. Students who want positions with even more responsibilities may decide to pursue a PhD after completing their MSc in Environmental Sustainability.

Students interested in learning more about environmental sustainability can find programs at a variety of institutions around the world. Some courses may be available online or on campus. The application process is easy. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

The ISLANDS programme combines a thorough training in scientific research with a thematic specialization in Islands and Sustainability. It also provides multi-faceted training of research skills for social science and environmental research, including Individual Research Training by senior staff and training to work in a multi- and interdisciplinary research group. ISLANDS students will be required to study at the University of Groningen in the first semester and the first half of the second semester of the first year of the programme. Then they study at one of the island-based universities of the consortium where they undertake a Research Internship Module. After returning to Groningen, students will again go to an island-based university to undertake their Master's thesis project in the second semester of the second year. ISLANDS graduates receive a double degree from the University of Groningen (including an acknowledgement that this is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master degree involving all partner universities) and the island-based University. The ISLANDS programme builds on the existing Research Master in Spatial Sciences programme at the University of Groningen (RUG). -
