Overview

The Climate Studies programme from Wageningen University and Research does not only cover the most important geophysical and biogeochemical processes involved in climate change (the mechanisms), but it also covers the socio-economic aspects of causes and effects, as well as adaptation and mitigation as the main categories of societal response. It combines and integrates the knowledge and expertise from three domains: Earth Sciences, Life Sciences, and Social Sciences.

Why this programme?

  • International and interdisciplinary programme addressing one of the key challenges faced by humanity.
  • Combines and integrates the knowledge and expertise of three main domains: Earth Sciences, Life Sciences, and Social Sciences.
  • Since there is a lot of free choice you can tailor your own programme and either choose for a broad knowledge or to become a specialist in a certain field.
