Drawing on fields such as anthropology, geography, sociology and economic history, the programme provides interdisciplinary perspectives and analytical tools for communicating about problems of sustainability. It represents an important complement to technological and natural science approaches towards sustainability by focusing on the cultural dimensions of consumption and resource use, cultural perceptions of environment and economy, and social science perspectives on the global distribution of environmental problems. A central aim is to help students develop skills in communicating across boundaries separating the discourses of different disciplines, cultural traditions, or the interests of business, politics and social movements. The programme encourages critical scrutiny of the debate about sustainability, but also a serious commitment to improving human-environmental relations worldwide. It covers the major social and environmental challenges of our time, including climate change and climate justice, unequal exchange and use of ecological resources, and the shifting of environmental risks and problems to the poorest parts of world society....

In this new programme, you will obtain in-depth knowledge of both the governance perspective (social science) and the natural sciences. You will learn how to integrate these perspectives in order to develop and improve the quality of governance solutions to major sustainability challenges such as climate change, loss of biodiversity and the transition to a circular economy. In addition, you will learn a variety of skills required to cope with wicked sustainability problems and to develop oneself into a future 'change agent' in a governance context.

The first year is used to create a ‘shared language’ and to bridge the differences between students related to their various disciplinary backgrounds. To accomplish this, you will be encouraged to share and leverage your specific knowledge with your peers, especially during the (in and outside) class group assignments. In the second year, we challenge you to create the connections and to deal extensively with a more complex real-life situation using the acquired knowledge and transdisciplinary skills.

Throughout the entire programme, you will work on group assignments based on real-life cases. These cases will translate the knowledge and skills directly into hands-on assignments that resemble what you could be confronted with in your future work environment. Moreover, these group assignments give you ample opportunities to practice skills like critical thinking, synthesizing, reflecting, arguing, debating, collaborating and intercultural skills.... [-]
