Overview

The focus of the Public Planning for Sustainable Development programme at Örebro University  is sustainable development as a vital challenge to our society, which needs to be seriously addressed by government and public administration. The programme is a cooperation between human geography, political science and sociology and is a one-year Master's programme of 60 credits.

The first semester, you take multidisciplinary courses that focus on sustainable development as a political and professional challenge, and contribute to theoretical and empirical insights into the complexity of different environmental problems and their connection to social and economic dimensions. You will develop an understanding of how environmental problems are framed and how these frames impact on what strategies and solutions are chosen, as well as help explain why some problems are not handled at all.

Career 

The programme has a clear professional profile, which will enhance the employability as a public official, planner and manager in governments, administrations and other organisations for which sustainable development is a vital goal, nationally and internationally.

The programme also prepares students for doctoral programmes in one of the three main subjects of the programme.
