Sustainable development is one of the major social challenges facing the twenty-first century - this much is beyond dispute. Yet, it still remains unclear in which direction, within which social and ecological framework, and by means of which strategy sustainable development can move forward. These questions form the starting point of our inter- and transdisciplinary research-oriented, and problem-focused Master's program Sustainability Science. CONTENT AND IDEA A distinctive feature of the Sustainability Sciences program is its balance between sustainable natural sciences and sustainable humanities. Our goal is to look at social-ecological systems in an academically grounded and interdisciplinary manner. We will examine the processes which form the material and energetic basis for environmental sustainability problems as well as potential practical solutions from the perspective of sustainable natural sciences. In complex social-ecological systems these material processes are closely interconnected with economic, juridical, political, and cultural contexts as well as with strategies and practices of important social actors. These immaterial prerequisites and conditions of environmental sustainability problems and the way these problems are addressed are the subject of sustainable humanities. [-]

Master in Molecular Biology (M.Sc.)

 

This intensive programme leads graduates with a bachelor's degree to a Master of Science (M.Sc.) within 18 months. After a 3-year doctorate programme, graduates may acquire either the title Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) or Dr. rer. nat.. The semester structure has been removed, different subjects are integrated into a uniformly structured range of courses and it is possible to switch into the doctorate programme without a master's thesis, thus shortening the period of study. All courses are held in English.The programme is divided into two parts. During the first year, lectures, tutorials, seminars, methodical internships and individually tutored research projects take place within 36 weeks. Lab rotation and individual tutorials as well as the involvement of lecturers from Max Planck institutes guarantee work that is hands-on and research-oriented. The first year of study ends with one written and two oral exams that qualify for the master's thesis. These may be omitted if good or excellent grades have been attained during the first year of study, allowing the student to switch directly over to the 3-year doctorate programme.Early participation in scientific conferences and courses as well as the publication of articles in international scientific journals are also required for the doctoral degree. The doctorate programme enables research stays in laboratories abroad.Social integration also plays an important role. A coordination office helps students at the start of their studies in Göttingen and offers a central contact point during the entire programme.Involved in the interdisciplinary programme... [-]

Forestry faces profound changes, thus forestry education must equip students with new skills. This first class MSc programme is conducted in an international environment, preparing students for a career in the forestry sector.

The forestry profession faces profound changes. Forests are no longer regarded simply as "factories" for wood production. The perspective has widened and the wide range of outputs from forests, has become a keen concern for the whole of society - nationally, regionally and globally. Across borders, countries share environmental and social issues; likewise, forest industries and markets increasingly cross national boarders. Consequently the forester of today must have a wide perspective and be capable of working in an international environment.... [-]
