About

Seas and oceans play an important role in our day-to-day lives, and over 65% of the world’s population lives or works in coastal areas. Vital for our economy and health – as well as for climate, food, and biodiversity – seas and oceans have immense societal significance. However, the oceans are changing rapidly as human-induced pollution and CO2 emissions lead to warming, acidification, and deoxygenation of seas and oceans. The impact on organisms, ocean chemistry, and currents on short to long timescales is uncertain, affecting ecosystems, but also the economy and policymaking.

As part of your two-year Master’s program in Marine Sciences, you will learn how marine systems and processes operate naturally – and how they change through human intervention. The program offers multidisciplinary cutting-edge knowledge and research in this rapidly developing field.... [-]

About

The world is rapidly changing; so is International Development Studies. After 15 years, the MDG-era (Millennium Development Goals) came to an end in 2015. A larger set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were introduced to guide long-term development policies and end global poverty. Development is no longer considered as a problem ‘out there’ in the global south. Our contemporary world faces new global concerns, such as the 'migration crisis', food security, climate change, and energy crises.

We also witness massive changes in the relative power structure in our world system. Africa, Asia, and Latin America are experiencing rapid transformations, turning traditional North-South relations upside down. Giants like India and China are strengthening their role in international development cooperation. These ‘new’ donors emphasize that ‘South-South cooperation’ is different from the Western notion of donors helping clients. While development has been traditionally defined by the donor community in the North/West, governments in Africa, Asia, and Latin America have come up with their own versions of ‘development’....

About

The Master’s program in European Governance explores pressing concerns facing Europe today:

How do we manage flows of migrants into Europe? How can we regulate financial markets? How can Europe make the transition to a green economy and sustainable forms of energy? Will reforms to welfare states foster economic growth, and if so, how do we approach these reforms? What are the emerging patterns of intelligence sharing and law enforcement within the context of European cross-border policing? Are European countries becoming more similar and homogeneous because of the EU? Does the EU unify us as equals or undermine democracy?

These are amongst the most important questions facing Europe today. Each issue involves activities at the local, national and European level, and each requires insight into the fields of economics, law and public administration. The interdisciplinary Master’s program in European Governance will equip you with the knowledge and skills to answer these questions and to formulate appropriate responses to the challenges they pose. Our program prepares you to deal with and work within the framework of European governance – both in Brussels and at home.... [-]
