About

The Master's Degree in Sustainable Development at the University of Basel (MSD) draws on concerns of sustainability that are generated by the natural, social and economic sciences.

Overview

The special feature of the MSD is its three-faculty-structure, formally recognizable by the three supporting faculties, but also by the equal treatment of the three pillars of sustainability – environmental, social and economic.

Although the master's thesis is written in one of the three offered focus areas, it may be interdisciplinary in its orientation. This guarantees that students can approach sustainability issues from different perspectives.
