The Double Master’s Programme in European Studies gives students the opportunity to benefit from the outstanding expertise of two top-ranking universities. Participants of the programme study at each university for one year and graduate with two master’s degrees from the Faculty of Management, Economics and Social Sciences, University of Cologne, and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Maastricht University. The Double Master is an ambitious research-based and interdisciplinary programme which has a strong focus on the European Union, its institutions and policies. Students develop an in-depth understanding of the EU and of the workings of politics and society in an integrated Europe. The programme equips graduates with excellent methodological skills, enabling them to operate at an advanced level in an international research environment. During their year abroad, students will be exposed to an international environment that allows them to improve their intercultural and language skills. Students admitted to the Double Master’s Programme pursue a Research Master in European Studies at Maastricht University in their first year and complete modules of the Master of Arts in Political Science at the University of Cologne in their second year. The programme is based on the mutual recognition of credit points by both universities. Students attend a colloquium and write their master’s thesis during their year in Cologne. The thesis is jointly supervised by professors at both universities. In cooperation with Maastricht University The Fac­ulty of Arts and So­cial Sci­ences (FASoS) has ap­prox. 1,800 stu­dents and is one of the six fac­ul­ties at Maas­tricht Uni­ver­sity. Its ed­u­ca­tional ap­proach is based on the prin­ci­ple of Prob­lem-Based Learn­ing (PBL). The Fac­ulty has a strong in­ter­na­tional ori­en­ta­tion, ev­i­denced by its in­ter­na­tional stu­dent body and its ex­ten­sive re­search.

Graduates of the programme are particularly well qualified for a career in the institutions of the European Union, other areas of public administration or international companies. The research-oriented nature of the degree also enables graduates to move on to doctoral research, or to research-related work in think tanks or NGOs. These career perspectives require familiarity with different academic cultures, and thus graduates with a double degree will be better prepared for these kinds of positions than most of their peers with degrees from a single university.

Master in Environment and Resources Management

Institute For Technology And Resources Management in the Tropics and Subtropics
Campus Full time 4 semesters September 2017 Germany Cologne

The binationale Master Programm started in 2008 as a joint initiative from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the German Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development (BMZ) and the Mexican National Council on Science and Technology (CONACyT). [+]

Masters 2017 in North Rhine Westphalia Germany. Master in Environment and Resources Management The Latin America and the Caribbean region (LAC) encompass a huge diversity of landscapes and ecosystems and is highly heterogeneous in terms of economic development and social and indigenous history. The region faces serious challenges such as climate change and natural disasters; and under conditions of population growth, urbanization and industrialization efficient environmental policies and programs are required to sustainably manage the natural resources. This calls for experts they be familiar with the culture, language and politics of both sides and are skilled in intercultural communication – in short, professionals with lateral understanding and trans-disciplinary approaches for a sustainable development. The binationale Master Programm started in 2008 as a joint initiative from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the German Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development (BMZ) and the Mexican National Council on Science and Technology (CONACyT). About the program The two year Double-Degree Master Program (to be known as "Environment and Resources Management –ENREM" with focus in Latin America) is building on the two accredited master programs of the cooperating universities in Mexico and in Germany: Maestría en Ciencias Ambientales at the Programa Multidisciplinario de Posgrado en Ciencias Ambientales - PMPCA from Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí (UASLP-Mexico) with a multidisciplinary context Master in Natural Resources Management and Development at the Institute Technology and Resources Management - ITT from TH Köln University of Applied Science (TH Köln-Germany) with an interdisciplinary approach. Objective of the program The Double Degree Master Program (known as ENREM) qualifies young professionals from Latin America and Europe with the necessary skills, tools and methods to evolve and apply integrated solutions for environmental and natural resources management in an international context – especially German-Latin American cooperation – and at the same time provide their work experience and regional knowledge to the mutual learning and intercultural environment. These experts are able to analyze and solve complex environmental problems in their specific socio-cultural and political contexts, given the technical and economic potentials of both regions. Target Group The ENREM approach is for Mexican, German and Latin American participants, however the program is opened for applicants of all nationalities, if the participants are highly motivated to work in an international cooperation with Latin American and fluently speak Spanish and English. Mobility The mobility concept of the program begins with the first year in Mexico, the third semester takes place in Germany and the last semester is exclusively for the development of the master thesis project either in Germany, Mexico or another Latin American Country depending in the thesis topic. Degree Successful graduates of the Double-Degree Master program will not receive an ENREM degree, but instead two degrees issued by UASLP: Maestría en Ciencias Ambientales TH Köln: Master of Science Natural Resources Management and Development Future Career The master program qualifies the student for a wide array of attractive positions, with career perspectives working with a high international mindset in the fields of planning, project implementation and evaluation either for: Professional career: preparing students for an employment in an industry, the public institutions, and ODA (both public and third sector) working in the field of environment and resources management usually with an interdisciplinary and international market orientation, or Research: leading to a PhD study and later employment at a university or research Centre Content The aim of the Double Degree Master Program is to qualify young experts in the field of environmental and natural resources management. In an interdisciplinary learning environment, students diversify their knowledge and build the capacity to think transdisciplinarily and laterally, as well as team and leadership skills, among them intercultural abilities. These competencies shall equip the graduates with the ability to analyze, characterize and solve complex problems of environmental and natural resources management and well as foster sustainable development, all in line with MDGs, the post-2015 development agenda and the emergent SGDs. The core module provide the students with an overview of different challenges relevant to environmental and natural resources management as Problemática y Gestión Ambiental, Desarrollo Sustentable, and some disciplinary and methodological approaches like Ecología, Estadística, Economía Ecológica, and Project and Business Management. The Project Modules (Seminario Multidisciplinario, ProjectIII- Implementation) are team-work and project-based, and require the multi-cultural student groups to elaborate an interdisciplinary and practice-oriented case study. During these Project Modules the students go through the processes of problem definition and analysis, development of concepts and solutions and finalized by designing a concept for implementation. The master thesis is based on a present research or management problem and can be developed within an ongoing project at a company or institution in Mexico, Germany or another Latin American Country, with the aim to expose the students to practice and embed them into a broad international network by strengthening links with organizations involved in the relevant research fields. The key competencies in order to provide solutions for sustainable use of renewable natural resources in particular of the Latin America will be provided in mandatory and specialization elective modules.
