Why study with us?

With our Master's in Global Environmental Change, you'll gain a solid foundation in environmental science, data collection and analysis, and land/water-use interactions. You'll develop key skills and knowledge needed to address some of the world's major challenges.

Why this MSc?

Changes to the environment manifest globally but will incur varied, and potentially devastating local impacts. This Master's programme seeks to reflect the interactions or 'nexus' between land use, water demands, food provision and energy supply. This framework becomes more pressing in a future under climate change. The compulsory courses will embody the complexity of this 'nexus', providing both a theoretical foundation on topics such as climate change and complementary practical skills such as carbon accounting which will enhance employability. Core courses include:... [-]

CONTRIBUTE TO SUSTAINABLE WATER MANAGEMENT

The two-year Master’s program in Water Science and Management will give you an in-depth understanding of modern water management techniques and water policies from a sustainable development perspective. You will gain an understanding of water’s role with regard to humanity and nature as well as the societal impact of interventions in the water cycle.

Water management in a wider context

Trends such as sustainable development, stakeholder participation, and economic accountability increasingly complicate the tasks of water managers. This has given rise to a need for water managers with a broad societal focus on water management issues, operating next to and in cooperation with more traditional and technical water managers. The Water Science and Management program, therefore, integrates knowledge from natural and social sciences as a response to emerging needs in the field.... [-]

Maastricht University – Faculty of Science and Engineering

International Centre for Integrated assessment and Sustainable development (ICIS).

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. This 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 ambience....
