Environmental Studies

A master's degree is a postgraduate academic degree. One must already have an undergraduate degree to apply for a master's program. Most master's degree program would require students to complete a master's thesis or research paper.

The goal of an environmental studies program is to prepare students to solve environmental issues. This may include working in the government to create new laws and policies, working in the legal system to fight for environmental causes or working in the field to protect natural resources.

 

 

Students who complete a part of their degree in Asia are growing in numbers. Currently, the second and the third biggest economies are in Asia. Without limitation, students have described their time in Asia as the best experience of their lives. Today, three of the four most populated countries of the world are in Asia: China, India, and Indonesia.

M.Des. in Earth Education and Communication

Vision

The Earth Education and Communication course at Srishti encourages students to get inspired by the relationships they personally form with the natural world as a complex system of interdependence and co-existence amidst survival and sustenance. We observe and investigate the porous boundaries that connect the human and more-than-human worlds with wonder and celebration. Most environmental concerns do not fit neatly into any one disciplinary knowledge system. We place significant value on interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary problem-solving.While there are many worldviews and contentious viewpoints in allied fields that deal with environmental issues, in this course we critically inquire into "being human" and if it is possible to achieve a symbiotic relationship with the evolving natural world around us. We see humans as a species powered through centuries of evolution and the environment, a piece in a complex intricate puzzle and not at the top of the food chain or at the apex of power. We choose to ask- As an intelligent species how do we consciously engage with the natural world at work around us? Can we create symbiotic relationships that are driven by the intelligence of the body in its sensorial relationships with life?... [-]
